Women's Inn Marks 40 Years Impact

The largest shelter and resource in New England for women experiencing homelessness

The Women's Inn is marking 40 years of impact helping vulnerable women. Through the 1970s, homelessness was on the rise, and with no safe place for women to go, some dressed as men to access shelter for the night.  

In 1980, when we moved to our current location at 444 Harrison Avenue, we established the Women's Inn to meet the need, starting with 50 emergency shelter beds for women and adding an additional 70 beds over the years. Today, the Women's Inn continues to be the largest nonprofit shelter and resource in New England for women experiencing homelessness.

Why do people become homeless?

There is no one simple reason. Sometimes it's a lack of affordable housing or job loss. Others grapple with instability due to mental illness or substance use disorder. Every guest's journey is different, but our goal is always the same: to support each individual in moving out of homelessness as quickly as possible.
