31st Annual Dinner—Recap
Our 31st Annual Dinner was held on November 16, 2016 at Boston Marriot Copley Place. It was an evening to celebrate partnerships—with donors, volunteers, and housing and social service agencies working together to better the lives of our lowest-income citizens.
The evening’s display of the art and writing of Caritas residents exemplified the power of partnering to combat isolation and promote self-expression. Our work with Operation A.B.L.E. and Silver Lining Mentoring gave courage to residents like Tom and Andrea to share their life stories—once of despair, and now of hope and happiness.
This year’s P. Leo Corcoran Humanitarian Award honored Wayne Patenaude and Cambridge Savings Bank for their partnership and commitment to giving back to the community. And, because you chose to raise your paddle to support this year’s Fund-Our-
Mission, a full-time resident services coordinator will help hundreds of residents connect to health care, employment opportunities and their community.
Thank You Donors and Supporters!
It takes strong partnerships to improve lives. Thank you for your support and for entrusting us to do our job of providing clean, safe, permanent, supportive housing to those most in need.
It is your compassion that is changing the narrative of our residents’ lives.
