The Coalition provides a number of programs to assist those who are experiencing homelessness or at risk of homelessness. 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.

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. The Teen Closet program works to fill these gaps.
