Basic Needs

Sometimes you need a hand to build or rebuild your life. Each year we help more than 120,000 community members access the resources they need to move from crisis to stability to self-sufficiency.


If you or your family lack food, Catholic Charities Boston provides food assistance. Pantries are located in Dorchester, Somerville, Brockton, Lynn, and Lowell.


We provide more than a bed for the night. Case managers at our referral-based programs assess the needs of the person seeking help and find the best place for them to restore and strengthen their families.
