Housing Families is a non-profit located in Malden, MA. We work with families experiencing homelessness, or are at risk of experiencing homelessness through providing various services and programs in order to combat homelessness and the cycle of poverty. Among our services, we offer a Youth and Family program in which we provide tutoring, counseling, and other opportunities for the children of our families.

Here are our immediate volunteer opportunities:

  • After-School Tutor – tutor homeless (and previously homeless) children to help them succeed academically in order to avoid the cycle of poverty
  • When: Monday-Friday 4-5pm or 5-6pm  (7pm on Wednesdays).
  • Commitment: At least an hour a week on a regular basis for 6 months
  • Childcare – watch and play with children during parenting workshops and counseling groups
  • When: Monday- Thursday 6-7:15pm
  • Commitment: Once a week for 6 months

We also have other service opportunities which include:

  • Donate A Meal
  • Fundraising
  • Holiday Drive
  • Backpack drive

If students are interested in volunteer opportunities they can e-mail me at jsaropoulos@housingfamilies.org. We will then set up a volunteer training course for them, they will fill out CORI/SORI forms, and we will move forward with scheduling them for tutoring. If any staff is interested in learning more about our organization or would like us to speak directly to their students we can schedule a time to come to campus to do so.
