Heading Home is a leading provider of housing and support services for homeless families with children and individuals – a champion of innovative solutions that moves people out of homelessness.
Safe, reliable housing means more to our clients than just having a home. It is the foundation allowing them to thrive and lead happy and productive lives.
While homelessness can be invisible, it is the epicenter of our clients’ lives. Loss of a job or illness can quickly force people into homelessness. Trauma experience is often part of our clients’ lives, contributing to their instability and homelessness.
Heading Home provides emergency shelter, transitional housing, permanent housing, and supportive services to homeless and formerly homeless families and individuals in Boston, Cambridge, Chelsea, Everett, Malden, Medford, Quincy, Revere, and Somerville. Our supportive services alongside housing help clients create futures without homelessness.
We emphasize permanent housing attainment and retention because success is most achievable within a permanent home. Research shows that providing housing alongside supportive services is much more effective than just providing one or the other.
