Friends of the Homeless, Inc. operates the largest emergency shelter for adult individuals in Western MA., provides services aimed at ending homelessness and operates 110 low-income housing units. We are a private, non-profit 501(C)3 organization established over twenty years ago to serve Greater Springfield. FOH recognizes that the need is great not only in our city but around the state. That is why we believe everyone shares an interest in solving the problem of homelessness. In addition to providing emergency shelter for adult men and women, we also own and operate a resource center on our Worthington Street campus in Springfield. All FOH shelter and housing is supported by case management aimed at obtaining and maintaining permanent housing. What we’re not interested in is allowing people to be warehoused.
Friends of the Homeless is a community ally in an individual’s struggle for independence. We invite you to join us in using your time, talents and treasure to be part of the solution.
We would like to consider every one of you a friend. It will take all of us working together to accomplish our goal of eliminating homelessness in our community. Friends of the Homeless, Inc. has a dedicated team of employees, volunteers and contributors who work tirelessly toward that goal.
