Solutions at Work partners with individuals and families to break the cycle of poverty and homelessness by providing them with opportunities to strengthen their self-confidence, professional skills, and financial stability.
Half of our employees have personally experienced homelessness. They have become powerful voices in the community to teach and mentor others!
Every year we serve 6,000 people living in poverty in the Greater Boston/Cambridge area. Our programs help people achieve self-sufficiency. We depend on donations of items to keep our programs running. All goods are free to those in need and donations are fully tax-deductible.
Our programs include:
Children's Clothing, Books, Toys and Gear: The homeless and low-income parents that participate in our Children's Clothing Exchange trade their children's outgrown items for age-appropriate clothing, books, toys and gear.
Business Attire: Through our SolutionsWear program, we provide free interview-appropriate clothing and accessories to men and women who are enrolled in area job-training programs.
Moving Services: Our unique Moving Up program provides low-cost moving services to people transitioning out of homelessness or those in extreme poverty.
Computers: Our Get Connected! program refurbishes high-quality donated computers and gives them to people moving out of homelessness to use to search for jobs, find affordable housing, continue their education, or stay in touch with their support network.
