Mark your calendars for the 3rd annual Winter Walk in Boston, an event to raise funds and awareness towards ending homelessness in Greater Boston.

Join the Brookview team for a 2-mile walk through Boston, shoulder to shoulder as housed and unhoused participants, ending with a community breakfast and stories from our homeless community.

The Winter Walk promises to be an impactful morning for you, your family, and your community.

This year’s event will bring over 1000 participants together on Copley Plaza. We hope to see you there as we make strides to end homelessness together.

Larry, age 18

“Life is not easy, but you don’t have to let it get you down, and if it does, you stand right up. It really feels good when you get extra help to get up on your feet.”

I am a senior in high schooI and wake up every morning at 5:30 AM for school. I have a B+ average and I do JROTC (Junior Reserve Officers Training Corp). I am going to apply to college and become an FBI agent. I am presently working at Marshalls so I can save for college. I was 17 when my family moved to Brookview. I thought I knew what to expect because I was living in a shelter in Fitchburg and it was awful; my little brother got sick a lot. Those were hard times. No access to transportation, no jobs, not a lot of food. I would never want to live like that again… Read more…

Tania is heading to Bryn Mawr College this summer.

After many years of challenges, Tania is transitioning to college. “When I came to Brookview House with my mom and two siblings I immediately got involved with their youth program and then their Girls Who Code club for two years.” Tania: • Received a full scholarship to study STEM at Bryn Mawr College • Worked at Vertex Pharmaceuticals last summer and will return this summer. After all of these amazing opportunities she acknowledges:

SUCCESS STORY

“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

YOUTH DEVELOPMENT

Damage from homelessness spreads outward, destroying lives, creating tragedies never imagined. School-age children and youth personify such a tragedy. The issue – homelessness – gets the attention, the children’s emotional needs are ignored…

ADULT SERVICES
