Falmouth Road Race

Thank you for your interest in running for Team Heading Home at the 2023 Falmouth Road Race. Heading Home’s mission is to end homelessness in Greater Boston. Running for Team Heading Home helps raise essential funds for our programs that have been supporting men, women, and children on their paths out of homelessness for nearly 50 years.

Why Fundraise for Heading Home?

  • Heading Home supports 1,600+ men, women, and children experiencing homelessness annually
  • Heading Home supports families with children AND individuals
  • We believe the path to permanent housing begins with a HOME and is most successful when paired with other supportive services

  • 83% of Heading Home clients identify as non-white and/or Hispanic/Latinx
  • 97% of households remained in permanent housing one year after leaving shelter
