Renae's Place for Homeless Families

YWCA Cambridge's Renae’s Place for Homeless Families offers a warm, stable environment for 10 homeless families at a time and offers support while these families build sustainable lives. Each family works with our case manager to assess where they are, set goals, and create steps toward achieving them.

Horizons for Homeless Children hosts a play space each night of the week in our shelter to give parents a chance to work on job applications, resume building, case management, and other tasks.
