This February join HOH's 20s and 30s crowd as we welcome members of the Faces of Homelessness movement from the Mass Housing and Shelter Alliance.
Housing for the homeless in Boston, particularly in the cold winter months, is a pressing need in our city, in the United States, and around the world. Come to the Vilna Shul and hear more about this essential work and how you can become part of the movement to ensure everyone has their basic needs met.
What is the Faces of Homelessness Movement?
Everyone deserves a home - and everyone has a story. Since 2010, MHSA has partnered with the National Coalition for the Homeless and AmeriCorps VISTA to create the Massachusetts Faces of Homelessness Speakers' Bureau. The Speakers' Bureau is comprised of homeless and formerly homeless individuals who share their experiences with schools, congregations and other community groups across Massachusetts. These presentations break down stereotypes and engage communities in efforts to end homelessness.
