Event description

Description

Homes for Families is a statewide organization that works in partnership with families, shelter/service providers, policymakers, researchers, and advocacy groups to address homelessness in the Commonwealth. Visioning Day is an annual convening of these stakeholders, and the Children’s Program is a critical component of our Visioning Day programming in support of families that have experienced homelessness.

We create a safe and fun play environment for children living in shelters across MA to engage in supportive activities with caring adults, allowing parents to fully participate in Visioning Day.

The Children’s Program includes:

  • Distinct rooms for young children (age 5 and under) and older children
  • A variety of age- and interest-specific activity stations and options throughout the day
  • Snacks and lunch provided
  • Guidance and support from Homes for Families and shelter staff

Our goal with the Children’s Program is to provide a day of fun and new friendships for children in shelters, supported by a dedicated team of volunteers and child development professionals! To make this day possible we are seeking volunteers who want to spend the day engaging in exciting activities with our youngest attendees. Volunteers will not only spend a day having fun with kids, but they also benefit from this day of service by gaining an increased understanding of family homelessness and making a positive impact in this community gathering.

We hope that we can count on you to volunteer and support our efforts as we work in collaboration with families, providers, communities and the state to end family homelessness in Massachusetts. If interseted pleae contact Shirblina at 646-716-1813 or email VisioningDayHomesForFamilies@gmail.com to sign up.
