Victory Programs has been helping individuals and families in crisis in the Boston are for over 40 years. Some 3,200 people turn to us yearly for shelter, sustenance, recovery, care, and professional, compassionate support.

When other organizations can't or won't take people in, we do.

We have 19 different programs in the Greater Boston area, including several family shelters, residential recovery programs, a drop-in center for low-income people with chronic illnesses, a mobile prevention team, and an urban farm.

As of December 15, 2021, all in-person volunteers must be fully-vaccinated against COVID-19. If you are signed up for any shifts or plan on volunteering with Victory Programs at any point in the future, please submit your proof of their vaccination status to me by December 15, 2021. This proof can be emailed, sent by mail, faxed, or dropped off. Additionally, if you are not comfortable sharing a copy of your card, you can arrange to show the card to me in-person or via Zoom. To read more about our policy, please see the official announcement on our website here.
