This January, FamilyAid Boston hosted an open house at our newest 4 unit HOMES supportive affordable housing property. Our longtime partner
generously donated the furnishings for the unit, which will be home to a mother and her three children who are moving out of shelter.
This event gave our partners a chance to see a physical representation of how, through their
we are able to create more permanent,
supportive housing for formerly homeless
families in Boston!
Permanent, affordable, supportive housing is essential for families to maintain long-term stability. As FamilyAid Boston President Richard Ring points out, ""From the outside, no one knows these buildings are 'affordable housing.' Families are able to be part of the community. They can be close to jobs, schools, and the community resources that are so critical as they work to regain stability.
We will keep growing this program so long as there are families in need, willing partners, and properties available. The sky is the limit."
