YMCA Housing programs are operated by the Huntington Avenue YMCA.
FAMILIES IN TRANSITION (FIT)
The Huntington Avenue YMCA’s Families in Transition program is an emergency shelter program funded by the Department of Transitional Assistance. FIT provides a wide range of life services including advocacy, employment support, health and wellness opportunities and childcare assistance to help homeless families find and sustain permanent housing.
FIT may host up to 22 homeless families, working to help families become stabilized and self-sufficient by using its own services and partnerships with other social service providers across Greater Boston.
FIT works to both secure adequate, affordable housing and help develop the skills and ability to help families maintain their homes once settled in permanent housing.
If you would like to learn more about FIT, volunteer or mentor, or help support FIT in anyway, please email David Tavares, Associate Director of Housing, or call him at 617.927.8270.
Huntington House features 66 single room occupancy units administered by the Boston Housing Authority and is a HUD Section 8 Moderate Rehabilitation program. Residents in the program benefit from employment opportunities, health and wellness activities and residential management services provided by the YMCA. The YMCA partners with many other non-profit organizations to provide Huntington House residents with a full range of supportive services.
