Help Required



More than 24,000 students enrolled in Massachusetts public schools are identified as unhousedness. In addition to tutoring and mentoring, we provide customized backpacks, grade-level books and academic supplies to support more than 6,000 students each year. Volunteer your family, group or company to stage a supply drive - or visit our headquarters to help customize backpacks for students in grades K - college. For a supply drive of your own, we will produce your personal flyer to help get you started. In addition to grade-level books and supplies, our volunteers add a personal note of inspiration into each backpack.
