Home Start Inc. and HomeStart for Veterans

Mailing Address: 
105 Chauncy Street, Suite 502 Boston, MA 02111
Organization's Mission: 
Founded on the principle that every person deserves a decent place to live, for over 20 years HomeStart has ended and prevented homelessness. HomeStart advocates provide support and compassion as they help walk clients through the difficult process of moving from shelters to permanent housing. After securing housing, HomeStart continues to help each participant re-integrate into their community by providing support services such as money management programs and life skills training. HomeStart also provides housing-search guidance to those who do not qualify to become a client during walk-in hours at both the Central Boston and Cambridge offices. HomeStart is also one of the first and one of the largest agencies in Boston that ends homelessness by preventing it in the first place. Our advocates have prevented over 3,000 low-income families and individuals on the verge of eviction from being homeless, by using innovative approaches such as – emergency mini grants, court intervention, and landlord mediation. For HomeStart to prevent an eviction it costs on average $726. It costs taxpayers approximately $30,000 a year to shelter that same family. Having a home restores a person’s dignity and offers the stability that is necessary for making other life changes, such as securing a job, advancing an education, regaining mental health stability, or maintaining sobriety. That’s why at HomeStart, we believe a home is where the start is.
