Our Impact

Heading Home is one of the few Boston-area homeless-serving agencies that helps both individuals and families. At times, a client may shift from needing individual support to needing a family program, through reunification as an example. Our ability to offer this smooth transition, and to address the often multitude of complex contributing factors, makes Heading Home a unique and effective homeless service provider.

We will continue to be leaders in the sector until there is a safe, secure, and affordable place for everyone to call home.
