Horizons for Homeless Children - Combating the effects of homelessness becomes an even more pressing and critical mission when children are involved. Horizons for Homeless Children is leading the fight in Massachusetts to help alleviate the trauma and stress of homelessness on both children and their families by providing high-quality early education, vital opportunities for play, support for parents, and crucial advocacy on behalf of some of our most marginalized citizens.

Cradles to Crayons/Boston - The kids we help don’t have shoes that fit. Or a coat warm enough to fend off winter winds. Or a backpack to carry their schoolbooks and supplies. Without these basics, they suffer. They don’t want to go to school. They have a hard time learning in school. They don’t go outside to play. They don’t feel valued. Our mission at Cradles to Crayons is to provide children from birth through age 12, living in homeless or low-income situations, with the essential items they need to thrive – at home, at school and at play. We supply these items free of charge by engaging and connecting communities.

Catie's Closet - Catie’s Closet gives children in need life-changing access to clothing and basic necessities so they can thrive in school and in life. Our vision is for every child to have access to the essentials that foster physical, emotional, and mental well-being.

Project Bread - It's about more than food. Hunger happens when there isn’t enough money to pay for rent, childcare, or medications, and still have enough left over to buy groceries to last all week. We make it easier for people to access and afford food with dignity - money for groceries, healthy meals for kids in their schools and all summer long, an expert helping you navigate your options to finally make ends meet. Project Bread connects people and communities in Massachusetts to reliable sources of food while advocating for policies that make food more accessible—so that no one goes hungry.
