Boston Homeless Shelters

 There are many reasons why people become homeless – reasons often beyond their control or ability to deal with. These can  include loss of employment, long-term illness, domestic violence,  divorce, substance abuse, and mental health issues that can make it  difficult, if not impossible, for people to pay rent or make mortgage  payments. However, Massachusetts offers a number of programs to help  families and individuals tackle homelessness on a short- or long- term
