Since opening its doors in 1969, Pine Street Inn has grown into New England’s largest nonprofit resource for homeless and formerly homeless adults. Throughout the ‘80s and ‘90s, Pine Street expanded from offering basic necessities – food, clothing, shelter and health care – and began to offer programs that help guests take significant steps in their journey out of homelessness and regain some of what they have lost – relationships, life skills, employment and housing. In the past five years, Pine Street has significantly expanded its inventory of permanent supportive housing to provide lasting solutions to homelessness. Today, 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.
