As #PrideMonth month ends, some good news comes out as New England’s first ever LGBTQ+ Senior Housing project breaks ground in #Boston’s Hyde Park neighborhood. This project is one step in tackling the unique challenges our Queer and Trans elders face in securing safe housing.

On May 23, 2022, we opened the doors to the first Transgender Transitional Housing Program in New England. The home will house 8 transgender and GNC/NB individuals experiencing homelessness for up to 12 months while providing supportive programming and counseling! 🎉

Today, the Baker-Polito Administration announced $5 million in funding for recovery housing and services in Boston.

Housing insecurity can be a major barrier to recovery. This funding will provide crucial support for individuals on the path to recovery.
