About Pine Street Inn
Pine Street Inn opened its doors in 1969. Over nearly five decades it has grown into New England’s largest nonprofit resource for homeless and formerly homeless adults. Pine Street Inn partners with homeless individuals to help them move from the streets and shelter to a home and assists formerly homeless individuals in retaining housing. Pine Street provides street outreach, emergency services, supportive housing, job training and connections to employment.
Pine Street tirelessly advocates for collaborative solutions to homelessness. Pine Street Inn serves over 1,900 individuals a day. From emergency services, to needs assessment, counseling and case management, to job training and placement in permanent housing, Pine Street Inn is providing the short-term remedies and long-term solutions to end the experience of homelessness. In 2019, Pine Street Inn celebrated its 50th anniversary and embarked on the public phase of a $50 Million Campaign (announced in early fall).
