Jessie’s House, the cornerstone of CHD’s homeless services, has been working with families since 1983. As one of the first family shelters in Massachusetts, Jessie’s House continues to serve and guide families struggling with homelessness, toward a future of hope, good health, and a safe place to call home while assisting them in developing the skills needed to establish sustainable self-sufficiency. Once families move to permanent housing; the staff at Jessie’s House continues to provide outreach services to help families continue on the path to success.
