Our Programs

Our Coalition provides a number of programs to assist those who are homeless or at risk of being homeless. For more information on each, please click on the program name.

The HomeLink Initiative is designed to work with community health centers, public school districts and early intervention workers to help identify households that are having a housing crisis and then offer quick assistance to ensure that they remain stably housed.

A Bed for Every Child Initiative
A good night's sleep has a major effect on a child's ability to come to school prepared to learn; falling behind due to a lack of sleep can have negative long term consequences on a student's education and future. A proven pathway out of homelessness is to ensure children of low-income families receive an education that will allow them to graduate from high school. To do this, we have to give these children the tools they need to succeed. One of these tools is a bed.

Room to Breathe 
The Room to Breathe Initiative was launched by the Coalition in 2013 to assist low-income families and individuals who are living with chronic respiratory diagnoses to improve their home environment to lessen environmental triggers with a goal of improving their quality of life.

Under One Roof
Under One Roof combines the Coalition’s furniture bank and homelessness prevention programs together to help households receive assistance with material needs while ensuring that they remain stably housed.

Teen Closet
Today 1 in 7 children growing up in Massachusetts is growing up in poverty. A teenager growing up in poverty often has to live without the most basic items - like clothing.
