Our target population is the homeless and the poor of Somerville and the surrounding towns that do not offer the services we provide. Last year we served over 300 in our case management and housing programs and over 1,500 in our food pantries with Project SOUP.
The Somerville area’s homeless population is quite diverse, and our range of shelters and services responds to this diverse constituency. We serve elders, single working adults, disabled individuals, and many families with children from newborns to teenagers.
The typical homeless family we see is a mother with two children. Many of these families receive transitional assistance benefits, although some are working parents whose income is still so low they remain in poverty.
