Event description

Description

On Tuesday, November 5th, 2019 Hearth will honor Eastern Bank at our annual Celebration and Award Gala at the Four Seasons Hotel Boston. The evening will also include festive food and cocktail pairings and a House Warming Drive to directly benefit the residents and clients of Hearth as they move into their new homes.

We are grateful to recognize Eastern Bank as the 2109 recipient of the Anna Bissonnette Award for their tireless work to ensure that neighbors across Massachusetts have equal access to food, employment, education, child care, basic necessities, and particularly a place to call home. Eastern Bank's dedication to those most marginalized by society truly exemplifies the spirit of this award’s namesake, Anna Bissonnette. This commitment has directly impacted the lives of hundreds, if not thousands of our homeless, formerly homeless and at-risk clients and residents throughout our 28-year history.


Proceeds from the gala will aid our work to end elder homelessness.

ABOUT HEARTH: Hearth is a non-profit organization dedicated to the elimination of homelessness among the elderly. This mission is accomplished through a unique blend of prevention, placement, and housing programs all designed to help elders find and succeed in homes of their own. To this end, all housing operated by Hearth provides a creative array of supportive services that assist residents to age with dignity, regardless of their special medical, mental health, or social needs.

Hearth serves men and women in the Boston area who are at least 50 years old and homeless, or at risk of becoming homeless. A leader in the field for more than 27 years, Hearth has addressed elder homelessness in the Greater Boston area by providing housing and supportive services to elders in need. Hearth’s Housing: Hearth owns or operates 188 units of service-enriched housing in 7 sites in the Boston area, including 43 units of Assisted Living in Roxbury. Hearth service-enriched housing model starts with a safe home, but also provides a holistic approach to care with its on-site team that includes nurses, social workers, and certified home health aides, who work together to address resident’s physical, behavioral health and social needs. The cost of Hearth housing is estimated to be significantly less than half the cost of institutional alternatives such as long-term care, and significantly less than the cost of leaving people homeless.

Hearth’s Outreach Program: Hearth housing has long waiting lists, so the Outreach Team works to place their over 275 homeless clients, and another 50 who are at risk of homelessness, into other appropriate, affordable housing opportunities and connect them with the services necessary to succeed in that housing. Once housed, the team provides stabilization services for 6 months to one year after placement.

Since inception, Hearth has placed close to 2500 elders into affordable, safe, and permanent homes. Hearth has received 18 different local and national awards recognizing its community leadership, high-quality innovative programs, fiscal responsibility, and achievements in increasing the supply of affordable housing for vulnerable populations.


HEARTH'S HOUSEWARMING: Help us provide for our residents and clients with a Housewarming to directly furnish their new homes. As an organization dedicated to helping homeless and at-risk individuals secure permanent housing, it is imperative that we provide them with basic and essential home goods that assist in the stabilization process. Attendees will have the opportunity to purchase items or furnish an entire room from $10-$5,000. You can help make a house a home with every donation.
