Pine Street Inn
Director, Employment and Workforce Planning Organization

Pine Street Inn opened its doors in 1969, and over nearly five decades it 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 to offering programs that help guests take significant steps in their journey out of homelessness and regain some of what they have lost, such as 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. Pine Street partners with homeless individuals to help them move from the streets and shelters to a home, and assists formerly homeless individuals in retaining housing. They provide street outreach, emergency services, supportive housing, job training, and connections to employment. They tirelessly advocate for collaborative solutions to homelessness through innovative programs that include:

Permanent Supportive Housing – More than 900 formerly homeless individuals live in 40 residences and in scattered-site rental units throughout Greater Boston. The program for tenants is a supportive housing model, coupling permanent housing with on-site support staff to help each individual regain his or her highest level of independence. Specialized housing is available for seniors, adults with mental health disabilities, and veterans. They currently have a one-year-or-longer housing retention rate of 92%.

Emergency Shelter – Each night, more than 670 men and women are provided with emergency shelter at one of Pine Street’s four locations. The Inn offers a warm and safe bed, two nutritious meals, shower and locker facilities, and health care and case management services, including substance abuse treatment and psychiatric support. Inventive programs such as Front-Door Triage and Rapid Rehousing are creating new paths out of shelters and into the stability of housing.

Job Training – Pine Street provides job training in food services and housekeeping, providing individuals with the skills they need to secure jobs. Approximately 140 individuals are served in job training programs each year. iCater is a social enterprise that extends the training and opportunities for Food Service trainees, with net proceeds directed to the job training programs.

Street Outreach – Pine Street’s outreach teams travel throughout Greater Boston to offer food, blankets, health care, and referrals to approximately 115 unsheltered men and women daily. The Inn is currently the only organization offering outreach in Boston every night. Today, Pine Street Inn serves over 1,900 individuals each 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.
