Your Gift Goes a Long Way

Most people would agree that there are few things in life that touch us more than seeing a happy child — opening gifts on their birthday, riding a bike, or eagerly waiting for their bus to take them to school. Feeling safe and worry-free, they are able to thrive as any child should. And as supporters of The Home, you know the joy that comes with knowing you have helped put a smile on a child’s face.

From the President


November is National Adoption Month and I want to take this opportunity to thank all those who have given a loving home to a child in need. The work we do every day here at The Home reminds us how necessary a stable, nurturing environment is to the healthy development of children.



Speaking Up for Homeless Youth

Imagine being 17 years old and shuffled among 13 different foster homes and two group homes in less than three years. Add to that some time living alone on the street and you have the story of one youth in our Young Adult Resource Network (YARN) program, who found the courage to speak up at a recent State House hearing on the Unaccompanied Youth Homelessness bill.



Dunkin' Donuts

With a Little Help from

Our Friends

Thanks to our friends at Dunkin’ Donuts, kids were able to experience the thrill of watching live sports. Through programs like Dunkin’ Dugout and Kid Zone, 15 kids from our programs have been “taken out to the ballgame” to see the Boston Red Sox in action.


Together for 50 Years

This year, WilmerHale celebrates its 50-year pro bono relationship with The Home. From providing adoption-related legal assistance to our clients in the 1960s and ʼ70s, to the real estate work done for our various campuses today, WilmerHale has been a true friend and partner to The Home.



Remembering a Friend

It was with deep sadness that The Home learned of the passing of Michael Donovan on August 27, 2013.  Michael first became involved with our Waltham House program as a volunteer with State Street Bank, visiting the program during summer BBQs and pizza parties.


Did You Know...?

Many kids in The Home’s programs work hard at giving back to their community. Among projects undertaken this year were cleaning and sorting toys for homeless/low-income children; cleaning up Ringer Park in Allston; distributing food and supplies in the Wellness Tent at AIDSWalk Boston and giving encouragement to AVON walkers; and raising $100 for the Trayvon Martin Foundation through a bake sale. One youth volunteered in a Buddy role at the Challenger League and two others attended the Bikes Not Bombs’ Earn a Bike program. | Unsubscribe | Update email preferences
