Our program is designed to provide respite for families experiencing homelessness. As one of the largest family shelter providers in Massachusetts, in addition to shelter, we offer case management, workshops and trainings, supplemental resources, seasonal support, and more to 126 families.
When families transition into permanent housing or short-term subsidies, we continue our work together for 12 months in order to ensure continued success. Families continue working with their case manager to develop an individualized stabilization plan. The goal of the stabilization program is to help families maintain housing and continue their journey toward self-sufficiency. Families are encouraged to maintain their engagement with Hildebrand and other trainings, programs and supports, and case managers help them navigate barriers to doing so.
Hildebrand owns and operates 11 units of permanent affordable housing located in three buildings in Cambridge and Dorchester. As a tenant of Hildebrand permanent housing, families have access to voluntary supports, services, and resources designed to assist clients in being good neighbors, maintain positive relationships with landlords and neighbors, and remain self-sufficient.
