The Friends of the Inn

The Friends of the Inn raise awareness of needs facing homeless men and women in the Greater Boston area and have a positive impact on their lives. The Friends accomplish this through a combination of advocacy and outreach efforts, creating and implementing fundraising events, and sponsoring or participating in activities designed to improve the quality of life of those in Pine Street's shelter and housing locations.

Friends of the Inn celebrate a day of set up for new housing units
