Somerville Homeless Coalition

About usSomerville Homeless Coalition (SHC) was created by the local community’s grassroots response to the social crisis of homelessness in 1985. Neighbors, community activists, university students, faith-based leaders, business supporters and city officials united to address the escalating problem of homelessness within Somerville. These collaborative efforts resulted in the opening of the city’s first emergency shelter and the establishment of SHC. Today, SHC transforms lives by providing services, support, resources and housing to well over 3,161 men, women, and children. SHC’s emergency response programs include an Adult Shelter, Family Shelter, Food Program and supportive services. Our housing programs involve Homeless Prevention and providing Affordable Housing with home-based Supportive Services to the most at-risk homeless individuals and families in our community.
