Guest Survey Results Announced

Over the last couple of months, we have been conducting surveys of our guests, as well as other homeless or displaced persons that we have met around Waltham. We asked about our programs and how we could better serve the community.

A New Home for the Day Center! UPDATE

Felton Street (click to enlarge)In case you hadn't heard, we have bought a building in downtown Waltham and we now occupy our new home at 16 Felton Street! (The buiding was formerly Franca's Pizza Restaurant.) We are initially occupying the second floor which gives us 2000 square feet of space with a kichen, comfy sitting areas, office and consultation space, and plenty of storage. We're excited aboutour new home and the oportunity it gives us to improve and expand our services and serve more people in need.

We still need your help! Many people and organizations have donated to make this dream become a reality, but like most projects, a few last minute surprises were in store: We need to install a new Heating/Air Conditioning unit (we thought the last one had a little life in it, but no) and our new kitchen requires an expensive hood and ductwork. In short, we still need to raise another $20,000 to pay off our remodeling cost nd to buy furniture and supplies. If you have donated already, we are reaching out to our existing supporters for a top-up. If not, here is your chance to be a hero... Help us over the top with your donation of any amount and be a part of this next phase of the Day Center!
