We at St. Francis House invite you to join our Team this year for the 7th Annual Winter Walk!
St. Francis House is located in the heart of downtown Boston and each day we welcome up to 500 individuals experiencing homelessness. Our refuge, recovery, employment and housing services overlap and build on one another to provide our guests with continuous and comprehensive support.
This year we are once again partnering with the Winter Walk to continue our valuable work!
“The Winter Walk is an initiative that believes ending homelessness is within our reach. Our mission is to raise awareness and funds towards that goal, and to support organizations in Massachusetts that are working on prevention, support, and care for our homeless community. Our year-round work in education, outreach, and advocacy, culminates in a monumental walk every February. Together we raise voices towards advocacy and action in the hope that we are just steps away from not only ending homelessness but creating lasting systemic change.
The 7th annual Winter Walk in Boston will be held on February 12, 2023. This 2 mile walk through the streets of Boston during the coldest month of the year will begin and end on Copley Plaza. Participants, housed and unhoused, will walk shoulder to shoulder and then share a meal together as we hear real stories of Boston’s homeless population.
Our homeless community are sons, husbands, mothers, brothers, wives, fathers, and friends. They could be you. Each of these individuals has a unique story – homelessness is their state of being, not their identity. All are our neighbors in need, and we can help.
In February 2023, we will come together to do just that. These will be days of humility and celebration, of learning and sharing.”
We hope you will join St. Francis House and the Winter Walk on this journey.
