Hosmer Co-Shelter houses two families in each unit, often times both families transferring from Hastings House.
The Hosmer Co-Shelter program consists of three multi-unit apartment buildings for 34 single moms and their child in 17 units in the Mattapan neighborhood of Boston. Families are placed into Hosmer units via internal referral and transfer from Hastings House; two families are placed in each unit. While residing at Hosmer, participants work with their program mentor to develop personalized mobility goals based on their Bridge to Self-Sufficiency assessment. They are keenly focused on obtaining permanent housing, achieving increased employment, and targeted savings.
