You are entitled to a safe, secure home.
We are here to help you find one.
Are you currently homeless? Are you living in a dangerous, unstable living situation?
We know that often times people stay in these situations because they feel trapped, with nowhere to go. But you have options.
Many programs at Way Finders require a referral from your local office of the Massachusetts Department of Housing & Community Development (DHCD). You can start by contacting their office directly, or visiting their website to determine if you are eligible. If you have questions, you can contact us.
Once you are in suitable and temporary safe housing, we will help you find your way to a more permanent situation. Way Finders also offers skills training and job placement programs to help keep you there. We believe the most difficult journeys start with a single step. Knowing that you have our support along the way can and does make a difference.
Your Next Steps
