Are you a natural organizer? Do you know how to paint? Do you like working outside? If you answered yes to any of those questions, you could help us keep our various properties nice and clean for our families!

Hosting a Drive

Finding affordable housing is a huge step for homeless families. Once housing is found, though, families have to fill the house with all the items needed for day to day living. For a family living on the edge of homelessness, the cost of these household items can be a huge obstacle. You can help by hosting a drive for needed items!

How you helpWe believe teamwork is the foundation of an effective and successful environment in which the whole is greater than the sum of its parts and volunteers are a critical part of our team.
About usSince 1986, HFI has expanded its services beyond a shelter and case management to include an academic and therapeutic program for children, youth and adults, which includes after school and summer enrichment components. In addition, HFI operates a nationally recognized eviction prevention program, a housing stabilization program, and has grown into one of the largest operators of affordable housing for homeless and very low-income families in Massachusetts.
