As I am sure you know, these are especially tough times for mothers and their children. Safe, affordable housing is scarce. Family homelessness is rising.
Your contribution to Brookview supports education, training, behavioral health, and youth programs that put an end to family homelessness.

Brookview House in Boston offers free coding classes to girls who have experienced homelessness, in the hopes of garnering their interests in computer science and programming. Their experiences in the program have shaped their views on computer science, as well as their goals for the future.

“Brookview helped me learn to communicate in English and recognized and nurtured my love of art. At first, I didn’t know how to speak English, and it was a big obstacle at school and in the community, so I needed to attend bilingual classes for two years. Now I go to regular classes; I have learned how to communicate in English very well. I joined the Teen Visionaries where I learned about domestic violence and tried photography for the first time. I also attended sculpture classes on Saturday mornings.” –Tania
