The Family to Family Project History

In 1988, families from the Cambridge area joined together to discuss the stereotypes, complex causes, and societal impact of homelessness. The founders of The Family-to-Family Project learned that often families find themselves at-risk of losing their housing or even homeless because one disastrous event starts a chain reaction of hardships. These families often have nowhere to turn for assistance as they do not meet the eligibility for state and federal sources of housing assistance.

This group of caring neighbors has grown to include over 1,000 families, individuals, and organizations that donate each year to help families remain in their homes. Support from the Family-to-Family Project's loyal donor base, combined with foundation and corporate grants, has sustained the program since its founding nearly 30 years ago.

In 2017, the Family-to-Family Project merged with its longtime partner, FamilyAid Boston in order to share resources and best practices and to expand both organizations' impact in the area of family homelessness prevention.
