4th Annual "Get Social For A Good Cause" Event

Get Social for a Good Cause

All Donations will go directly to provide essential items for Welcome Baskets.

The Caritas Communities’ Young Leaders Group is pleased to invite you to join us for the 4th Annual “Get Social for a Good Cause” networking event to raise awareness and funds on behalf of Caritas residents.

We are calling all young professionals to join us for a night of cocktails and networking on the Boston waterfront in support of this important nonprofit. At Caritas, we believe secure housing, support and a sense of community are the foundation of human dignity and lead to healthy and productive lives. For 32 years, Caritas has provided safe, permanent housing for very low income individuals living in Greater Boston.

Event: 4th Annual Young Leaders Event
Date: Tuesday, May 23, 2017
Time: 6:00 – 8:00 p.m.
Suggested Donation: $20 (at the door). Proceeds will help purchase Welcome Home Basket essentials.
Location: Tia’s on the Waterfront
Directions: Map and directions to Tia’s

Our goal this year is to increase sponsorships of Welcome Home Baskets that are provided to any new resident, earning under $20K, arriving with JUST the clothes on their back. Your basket will provide new sheets, a blanket, a pillow, personal hygiene essentials, a place setting—all the things that are so easily taken for granted.

Please Become a Sponsor
$50.00 buys one basket and bring a friend to the event for free
$100.00 buys two baskets and bring three friends to the event for free

Be sure to select “Welcome Home Basket” under gift designation.

Cortes Street offers forty (40) totally rehabilitated units located in the Bay Village.

All 40 residents are BHA Priority One placements arriving straight from homelessness. Under Caritas Communities’ leadership, these four brownstones have been completely transformed from SROs to 32 units with private baths and kitchens and eight rooms with private baths and shared kitchens.

Project Place, our partner in this effort, is providing outreach and training to the residents. Project Place is a pre-eminent, non-profit organization that provides employment opportunities to the homeless through a variety of successful programs including the well-respected Clean Corners Program in Boston’s Downtown Shopping District.
