Mission Statement

Hearth is a non-profit organization dedicated to the elimination of homelessness among the elderly. This mission is accomplished through a unique blend of prevention, placement, and housing programs all designed to help elders find and succeed in homes of their own. To this end, all housing operated by Hearth provides a creative array of supportive services that assist residents to age with dignity, regardless of their special medical, mental health, or social needs. Hearth believes these goals are best accomplished through respect for elders and staff, with the desire to see both achieve their highest degree of potential.

Description

Hearth, Inc. operates 174 units of permanent housing for formerly homeless elders at six residential sites throughout Greater Boston. The essence of Hearth's Housing Model is the integration of interdisciplinary services at each residence:

  • Housing
  • Mental Health Care
  • Health Services
  • Social Services

The Outreach Program works with over 325 elders each year, helping them find and succeed in homes of their own.

Hearth's National Initiative focus on raising awareness about the crisis of elder homelessness and promoting Hearth's Housing Model and Outreach Program as the solution.

I received an email shortly after signing up, and the process/my objectives were very clear. It was fun and easy!
