Massachusetts Coalition for the Homeless

 

More than 20 years ago, Massachusetts Credit Unions began working with the Massachusetts Coalition for the Homeless (Coalition) to aid them in their efforts to support homeless families.  Over the years, that relationship, the bond between credit unions and this outstanding organization, has become stronger as has the respect for the tremendous work that they do. 

The reason for the lasting success of the relationship between Massachusetts Credit Unions and the Coalition is a shared commitment to service.  The Coalition’s mission statement clearly states that commitment:
 

"The Massachusetts Coalition for the Homeless was the first advocacy organization in the Commonwealth with a mission dedicated exclusively to ending homelessness. The Coalition was founded by a group of concerned citizens who recognized that homelessness was a complex and wide-spread problem that was affecting men,women and children across the state.  Realizing that emergency services alone could not solve homelessness, the Coalition’s mission is to address the broader factorsthat contribute to homelessness."
