Our Mission, Vision and Values
Finding Everyone A Home
The mission of the Somerville Homeless Coalition is to provide homeless and near homeless individuals and families with individualized supportive services and tailored housing solutions with a goal of obtaining and maintaining affordable housing.
Programs and Services
Outreach happens on differing levels across our programs, we offer outreach to the community through our many programs like Project SOUP and our Monday Night Meal, as well outreach to those on the street.
Somerville Homeless Coalition has two shelters, one for individuals and one for families and both have waiting lists.
Supportive Housing helps people stay housed by helping a family avoid eviction, rehousing those who become homeless and supporting those in the community maintain their housing through case management.
SHC has two food pantries, an emergency pantry at our Davis Square headquarters and a more extensive offering at 165 Broadway in East Somerville called Project SOUP. At the Project SOUP location we offer a variety of fresh produce, meal, dairy and canned foods.
