Today, City Mission continues to be an innovator in our work to serve the people of Boston. Guided by our mission we strive to empower individuals through our Homelessness Prevention programs that assist women with young children who are in danger of losing their housing. We are committed to education by working with students from high school to graduate school to learn about social justice and the complexity of urban poverty. And, we engage in advocacy with people through cross-cultural learning opportunities and public events. Our guiding principles of empowerment, education, and engagement make a real difference, and because of you, radiate hope into every neighborhood.

The Boston Lights Gala: Sharing the Radiance of Hope! is critical in ensuring that City Mission can continue to support and serve the people of Boston.
