You can help. On February 13, more than 50 people, including 16 children, were displaced by an apartment block fire on Highland Avenue. Fortunately, everyone got out safely, but significant challenges remain for our neighbors and students who cannot return to their homes. More than 13 City departments and a half-dozen partner agencies mobilized to set up temporary shelter, food, and other supports, but your help is needed for what comes next.

These residents have been uprooted and their lives turned upside down. If you are willing and able, please donate to the Somerville Homeless Coalition’s EMERGENCY FUND. Donations of any size will help rebuild our community, one family at a time. The fund is designed to provide immediate relief to the affected residents and will help other neighbors in need as they face future emergencies.

Special thanks to Somerville Firefighters Local 76 for quickly knocking down the fire and saving lives that day.

You can donate and select “Emergency Fund” to support these families, students, and residents here: https://protect-us.mimecast.com/s/wOoaCM8xK3Hq12RqCwXZNN

Together, we can make a difference. Thank you.
