Our mission is to provide homeless and nearly homeless individuals and families with individualized supportive services and tailored housing solutions with a goal of obtaining and maintaining affordable housing. The Somerville Homeless Coalition was created by the community’s grassroots response to the social crisis of homelessness in 1985.
Today, SHC transforms lives by providing services, support, and housing to well over 7,500 men, women, and children.

No matter how our clients end up at SHC, we meet them where they are and ensure they are given resources and assistance to help them thrive. Access our services!
Over the last two years we served more clients across all of our programs than ever before. We continue to expand our services and reach more clients experiencing homelessness and food insecurity. Your support makes this work possible. Thank you!
