Emergency services in times of difficulty.

No one should go without a safe place to live or food to eat. We can help.

A community is only as strong as its most vulnerable members. By meeting the social service needs of our community, we help improve mental health and wellbeing for hundreds of individuals and families each year while building a healthier community for all. Our integrated and comprehensive programs–including The Brookline Safety Net, a program of the Brookline Community Foundation managed by The Brookline Center—offer immediate assistance around housing, food, and other basic needs, while addressing the underlying issues that may contribute to a family’s instability.
