The 13th Annual Save Our Homes Walk will take place on Sunday, May 22nd!

1:30 PM - Registration
2:00 PM - Walk begins 

Last year, the Walk raised $40,000, which provided families and individuals with cash grants to help with security deposits, back rent, utility bills, and moving costs related to homelessness prevention. Every year, friends and members of SCC band together with the Somerville Homeless Coalition, Cambridge and Somerville Legal Services, and the Community Action Agency of Somerville, to continue this valuable tradition of raising much-needed funds for housing stabilization.

Join us this year for the 5K walk to raise money to support our friends and neighbors who find themselves behind in their rent and at risk of becoming homeless as a result. Often, a small amount of money can make the difference between keeping someone in safe, decent housing, versus living on the street, homeless.

On May 22nd, join us as we strive to reach this year’s fundraising goal of $50,000 to help even more of our neighbors in need. It’s a fun, festive afternoon with a nice walk through Somerville neighborhoods. The route passes several landmarks that relate to affordable housing in Somerville.

Join Team SCC! Help us reach our fundraising goal to prevent and end homelessness.
