Our Beginnings

In 2001, a group of homeless individuals, community activists, and local church leaders identified a critical gap in services for the homeless in Waltham. Many of Waltham’s homeless are residents of overnight shelters which require them to leave the premises early in the morning. The Salvation Army operates a breakfast program in the mornings and the Bristol Soup Kitchen provides dinner in the evenings. Between noon and 5:00 p.m. the options for safe, productive places to stay are extremely limited.

The community group worked together for two years to make the Day Center a reality. The Day Center opened its doors in September 2003 in the basement of a local church and has averaged approximately 50 guests daily.

We Need Your Help

We are giving out backpacks and duffel bags to each of our guests at our holiday party this year.  Backpacks have a lot of utility for homeless people. We are looking for individuals, churches and other groups to commit to donating money to purchase them for us.

We Are Getting a New Home!


We are very close to completing the remodel on or new home on Felton Street. But like all projects, a few ugly surprises were in store.

We're about $35,000 short and going for a last push to fill this gap.
