Founded in the early 1980s, Project Hope addressed the emerging problem of family homelessness in the Dorchester and Roxbury neighborhoods.
The Family Shelter was one of the first homeless shelters for families in the state and remains a model for its respectful and empowering approach.
Today the Family Shelter offers a haven for 11 single mothers and their children.
Each family has a private room and access to a communal kitchen, dining room, living room and children's activity room.
They receive assistance to find safe and affordable housing for their families and access to educational and workforce development programs.
Their programming is designed to promote confidence and empowerment, helping women find the courage to prevail against tremendous odds to obtain a better life.
