In June of 2014, Mayor Martin Walsh and the City of Boston answered the Mayors Challenge to End Veteran Homelessness issued by First Lady Michelle Obama to house all veterans by the end of 2015, and thus Boston Homes For The Brave was born.  Boston Homes for the Brave brings together an unprecedented group of government and nonprofit agencies, all working in conjunction and committed to ending veteran homelessness in Boston. 

The City developed a database to match homeless veterans with available housing. You can view partnering organizations below, or help by listing your available units
