Join fellow HomeStart supporters for a commemorative evening to celebrate the stunning courage of our clients, remarkable accomplishments of our honorees and the opportunity for us to, together, make an even greater positive impact on the city of Boston. We’ll enjoy dinner & cocktails, a significant silent auction with many unique experiences up for bid, and a chance to hear from leaders in our fight as well as clients whose lives have been positively affected by HomeStart’s work!

On the night of September 20, 2017 we will humbly honor:

As Chief of Housing and Director of Neighborhood Development, Sheila is our city’s greatest champion for fighting homelessness, preventing eviction, and creating affordable housing. Sheila has played a critically important role in partnering with HomeStart to eliminate all homelessness for those in poverty from non-payment eviction.
