Speakers’ Bureau

Dedicated to providing people who have experienced homelessness opportunities to share their stories and educate the public about solutions to homelessness, the MHSA Speakers’ Bureau includes people from a wide variety of ages and backgrounds — each with their own unique story.

Presenting to schools, faith communities and other community groups, the Speakers’ Bureau has reached more than 20,000 community members across Massachusetts and New England since 2010. During their presentations, speakers highlight the realities of homelessness through their personal experiences, raise awareness about the importance of housing and encourage audiences to engage in efforts to end homelessness.

For information on becoming a speaker or to request a presentation, please visit our Speakers’ Bureau page.
