About this Shelter

Father Bill's & Mainspring offers an array of services to people who are homeless living in Southern Massachusetts, including two 24-hour emergency shelters (located in Quincy and Brockton), two family shelters, and over 360 units of supportive housing through their Housing First program. 

Father Bill's & Mainspring believes in the Housing First approach to ending homelessness, as it is based on the belief that when an individual moves into a home of their own, they can begin to address the issue that initially led to the loss of housing.

Once in a home, formerly homeless men and women receive supportive services such as case management and counseling to help them stabilize and remain in housing.


Mission Statement: Father Bill’s & MainSpring is committed to ending and preventing homelessness in Southern Massachusetts with programs that provide emergency and permanent housing and help people obtain skills, jobs, housing, and services. We help people who are struggling with homelessness or are at risk of homelessness to achieve self-sufficiency.
