Individual Homelessness

Homeless individuals, who make up a third of the state’s homeless population in Massachusetts, face a unique and more difficult experience than what is commonly believed. The number of homeless individuals in Massachusetts is on the rise, and state funding that helps provide critical services has been stagnant in recent years. Massachusetts funds homelessness services through two avenues: family based services and services for individuals. While funding for both facets is critical, our coalition focuses on providing vital services to homeless individuals.
