Massachusetts Housing & Shelter Alliance is pleased to welcome three new member agencies dedicated to ending homelessness in Massachusetts: the Center for the Prevention of Elder Abuse and Neglect at Hebrew SeniorLife, Craig’s Doors – A Home Association, Inc., and the Massachusetts Association for Mental Health (MAMH).
The Center for the Prevention of Elder Abuse and Neglect at Hebrew SeniorLife, an affiliate of Harvard Medical School, is a nonprofit, non-sectarian organization devoted to innovative gerontology and geriatric research, senior health care, long-term chronic care, and Greater Boston senior housing communities that improve the lives of older adults. From independent living to assisted living, Hebrew SeniorLife provides retirement communities in Massachusetts that are designed to help older adults live healthy independent lives.

Craig’s Doors – A Home Association, Inc. adheres to a “Housing First” model. Case managers at their year-round and seasonal emergency shelters work closely with guests to find sustainable, permanent re-housing that meets their needs, while connecting them with a wide network of partner service providers to coordinate other aspects of their care.
