HomeStart is a non-profit organization whose mission is to end homelessness in Greater Boston by assisting individuals in obtaining permanent housing and settling into the community, and by developing strategies to address systemic barriers to housing placement.
HomeStart is dedicated to ending homelessness and changing lives. HomeStart’s focus is on each individual person. The premise of our work is that every person needs a decent place to live. Having a home helps to restore a person’s sense of dignity and offers the stability that is often a prerequisite for making other life changes, such as securing a job, advancing an education, regaining mental health stability, or maintaining sobriety. The staff treats each person assisted with respect and keeps a laser-like focus on the goals of finding and keeping housing until these results are achieved.
