Helping Families in Need

Catholic Charities Boston

Response to Housing Crisis

Catholic Charities Boston is committed to partnering with the State in providing a safe place to sleep for people in need as they work to rebuild their lives.

On August 8, 2023, Governor Healey declared a state of emergency due to the rapid increase of families needing shelter in Massachusetts. We have doubled our family shelter capacity in response to the housing emergency and will continue to work with partners across all sectors during this unprecedented time of need.
