Hildebrand Family Self-Help Center, Inc. is a 29 year old independent nonprofit organization with a mission to partner with families experiencing homelessness to achieve self-sufficiency. Exclusive to families, Hildebrand began as an outgrowth of a social action ministry of the St. Paul AME Church in Cambridge. The organization is named after the regional bishop, Rev. Richard Allen Hildebrand, who authorized the rehabilitation of St. Paul’s former parsonage for use as a shelter for homeless families. Today, Hildebrand, one of Massachusetts’s largest providers of emergency shelter for homeless families, supports 306 families in shelter and our stabilization program, and also operates permanent housing on a $6.4 million budget with a staff of over 65 employees. Its housing portfolio includes seventy-three (73) scattered site apartments, five (5) congregate living programs, and three (3) permanent housing complexes throughout the Metro Boston area, including Cambridge, Chelsea, Dorchester, East Boston, Hyde Park, Mattapan, Revere, Roxbury, and Quincy. Hildebrand’s value lies in its ability to build strong relationships with families leveraged by strategic public and private partnerships that enable it to provide enhanced services and support. Some partnerships include the Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD), Horizons for Homeless Children, Cradles to Crayons, Novartis, Community Servings and most recently, Food for Free. Hildebrand, an organization that accounts for half of the homeless families sheltered in Cambridge, is also a part of the city’s Cambridge Continuum of Care, addressing the issue of homelessness.
Through the compassion and commitment of our supporters, staff, partners and volunteers, The Greater Boston Food Bank (GBFB) takes a bold, innovative and multi-pronged approach to achieve our mission to end hunger here.
GBFB is the largest hunger-relief organization in New England and among the largest food banks in the country. Last year, we distributed 60.7 million pounds of nutritious food to people who struggle to have enough to eat. We are committed to increasing our food distribution to provide at least one meal a day to every person in need in Eastern Massachusetts while supporting healthy lives and healthy communities. Our progress toward this goal is documented by town on our interactive map.
The Greater Boston Food Bank is a member of Feeding America, the nation’s largest hunger-relief organization.
