History

Back in 2015, when Massachusetts ran out of shelter space and began housing families in area motels we began supporting families through various community services. One of the gaps that quickly emerged was that even when a family was able to find housing outside of the motel, they were without possessions to set up a household; cooking pans, dishes, sheets, blankets, shower curtain, can opener, etc. The Home Project was created to help those in need during these tough times.

What is the Home Project?

The Home Project provides low income families transitioning from homelessness with recycled household goods, small furniture, and small appliances necessary to live with comfort and dignity.

Our Mission & Vision

The Mission of the Home Project is to manage and operate a free store of kitchen, bedroom, and bathroom items to support families transitioning from homelessness to shelter; families who are victims of natural disasters; and families in need.

Our Vision is to ignite a change in the culture of disposing possessions by creating an opportunity for unwanted goods to be re-purposed for the benefit of others. We are hoping with your help we can make a difference!

Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteers are what make The Home Project so special. We provide an outlet for our community to come together to help others in a warm, kind environment that fosters collaboration and creativity.
