Join MHSA for a Summer Evening at Market!      

MHSA invites you to join us for a summer evening reception on Thursday, July 18, 5:30-8:00 p.m. at Market's rooftop bar, 21 Broad Street, in Boston's Financial District. Funds raised will support MHSA's Faces of Homelessness Speakers' Bureau, a program that empowers people who have experienced homelessness to share their stories and advocate for housing.
Mix and mingle with members of the nonprofit and corporate sectors, young professionals, and MHSA supporters while enjoying the summer evening weather with drinks and a raffle. In addition to time to network with friends new and old, the evening will feature a speaker who will share personal stories about homelessness and the importance of housing.
