Heading Home Shelter

109 School Street
Cambridge, MA - 02139

Short term and extended stay beds for sober men and women. Provides case management, housing search, and referrals to community services to assist with mental health, medical care, employment, education, and benefits.
Referral is needed; then call at 10 am to reserve a bed

Our clients are both individuals and families spanning all ages, from infancy (and even pre-natal care) to elderly. A typical homeless family consists of a single mother in her 20s with 1-3 children; the majority of our own family program participants are young single mothers. People with disabilities are disproportionately homeless; we also provide specific services for individuals with disabilities both directly and via partnerships with housing development corporations.
