Home is the Start...
At HomeStart, we believe that home is the foundation of a thriving life, and a dignity to which everyone has the right.
HomeStart is an innovative nonprofit whose mission is to end and prevent homelessness in Greater Boston. To date, HomeStart has permanently housed more than 12,000 people out of homelessness and prevented more than 2,500 households from being put out through eviction- with 95% of those households remaining securely housed even 48 months after the intervention.
We provide wrap-around services that work to end homelessness via a three-pronged approach:
We intervene to prevent families and individuals from experiencing homelessness by way of eviction by providing advocacy and financial assistance.
We ensure that clients have the best chance at maintaining their housing after placement by providing essential support services.
We place families and individuals who are staying in shelters or living on the street into permanent housing.
