About Boston Public Health Commission

The Boston Public Health Commission Homeless Services Bureau provides over 700 emergency shelter and transitional beds throughout the city, offering a broad range of critical and rehabilitative services to homeless men and women each and every day. The Homeless are a diverse group facing many difficulties, among them: an inability to find affordable housing, mental and physical illness, alcohol and substance abuse problems, the effects of domestic instability, limited education, a lack of job skills and unemployment. Often, homeless people have lost contact with any network of personal support they may have had in the past. Our services to the homeless are dedicated to addressing these difficulties. Our overriding objective is to preserve the dignity and respect of the people we serve by providing a welcome respite, a warm bed, hot meals, transportation, quality health care and social services to those in need.
