Mission, Vision & Values

Our mission is to end and prevent homelessness in Southern Massachusetts with programs that provide emergency and permanent housing and help people obtain skills, jobs, housing, and services. We help people who are struggling with homelessness, or are at risk of homelessness, achieve self-sufficiency.

Diversity & Inclusion Statement

Father Bill’s & MainSpring strives to maintain and enhance our​ diversity and inclusivity by welcoming and empowering all staff, volunteers, participants, and agency stakeholders. Consistent with our mission we provide equal access and treat everyone ​with dignity, respect and fairness. We are committed to ​supporting opportunities for growth through learning and by ​providing forums that strengthen our diverse and inclusive ​environment.

As an agency, we are always researching best practices, evaluating our own performance, and striving to reduce the need for costly emergency shelter. Recently, we launched our new Strategic Plan that allows FBMS to fully realize our vision for a housing-based response for individuals and families in need.
