Welcome Home provides families experiencing hardship with basic household items they need to live with dignity.
Staffed by volunteers, Welcome Home accepts goods to donate and to keep items out of landfills. These goods are cleaned, shelved, and made available to people struggling to meet their basic needs.
Welcome Home serves ethnically and socioeconomically diverse individuals and families in Newton, its surrounding communities and Boston. People impacted may be coming from unstable, unsafe or transitional living situations, homelessness, lost jobs, or other financial struggles.
The majority of our clients are women, most of whom care for children, parents, spouses, siblings, and neighbors. The goods one client receives therefore serve to benefit many, bolstering health, self-esteem and a sense of well-being.
It is our vision to see that everyone who contacts Welcome Home receives the essential kitchen, bath, bedding, and additional items they need to turn any house into their home.
