Family Promise North Shore Boston aims to prevent and end family homelessness. We promote access to economic opportunity and housing stability through a holistic, family-centered, community-based response.
Since May of 2013, Family Promise North Shore Boston has worked with local organizations and congregations, hundreds of volunteers, and dedicated staff, to further our mission of promoting access to economic opportunity and housing stability.
We are a unique and important asset to the North Shore community as we are one of the only privately funded shelters for families in all of Massachusetts. Currently, when a family seeks shelter they are directed to their local DTA office where they are determined "eligible" or "ineligible" for shelter. In many cases, families who have nowhere else to go can still be considered ineligible for a variety of reasons, such as being "over-income." Family Promise fills an important gap by being a resource for families who are being turned away from the state shelter system.
We also offer Homelessness Prevention and Shelter Diversion.
