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 Are Getting a New Home!

We are excited to announce that we have bought a building nearby and are in the process of making it the new home of the Community Day Center.
