Dear Friends,

Throughout the pandemic, Father Bill’s & MainSpring (FBMS) has not wavered from our innovative long-term strategy to end homelessness in Southern Massachusetts. At this most critical time, our bold vision is becoming a reality – thanks to our supporters.

In Quincy, we are building the Yawkey Housing Resource Center, which will transform how our community responds to homelessness. This development will add daytime supports and streamlined services to prevent homelessness and reduce reliance on emergency shelter.

In Brockton, we are converting an underutilized hotel into permanent supportive housing for homeless individuals. It’s the first of its kind in Massachusetts.

Meanwhile, our compassionate donors, volunteers, and community partners have provided the swift support needed to respond to the immediate challenges at our front door. We have continued to provide life-saving services to a growing number of individuals and families facing a housing crisis during the pandemic.

This has meant operating additional shelter sites, hiring new staff, investing in food and supplies, and partnering with local health care partners to provide COVID-19 vaccines and tests to our guests and staff.

Our dedicated supporters have helped us meet the moment and look ahead as we create a path home for our neighbors in need. We are grateful to be part of such a caring community.
