Scattered Site Family Shelter

FamilyAid Boston, in partnership with the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, provides eighty units of apartment-based family shelter in neighborhoods throughout Boston.

A familyOur Scattered Site Family Shelter program provides homeless families with shelter in private, neighborhood-based apartments where they can live independently and access jobs and schools while building the resources and tenancy skills they need to sustain permanent housing.

Participating families meet with a skilled team including social workers, case managers, housing specialists, and employment specialists. This team conducts ongoing assessment of each family to determine the issues that led to their becoming homeless and address the barriers they face in obtaining permanent housing.

In an effort to help families maintain and build on these positive changes, the Scattered Site Family Shelter program also provides stabilization services to families after they exit shelter.
