Direct Services

Haley House's original program - the Soup Kitchen - has expanded to include a weekly Food Pantry and Elder Meal Program. The Soup Kitchen is open to men only for breakfast from 5:30-9:00am Monday-Friday and 9:00am-12:00pm on Sunday. Its goal is to build relationships before men disperse to the chaos of life in the streets; to engender a belief that change is possible. Elder Meals on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 12-2:30pm and on Sundays from 1:30-4:00pm give women and men who live alone the opportunity for companionship as well as nourishing meals. The Food Pantry takes place every Thursday from 10:30-11:30am, requires prior registration and serves a large Chinese population of elders.

Population(s) Served

In 1979, Haley House became the first homeless service provider in Boston to create permanent housing. Beginning with the Rooming House on Tremont Street, Haley House currently owns and manages 100+ units of permanent, affordable housing in Boston's South End neighborhood. Some units are reserved for people coming out of shelters and transitional programs while others are family housing. Helping to break the cycle of homelessness, Haley House developed 24 units of permanent, single room occupancy (SRO) housing for formerly homeless individuals. Our average tenancy of 8.3 years and occupancy rate of 96% are remarkable considering the challenging transition between shelter and permanent housing.

Population(s) Served

Haley House Bakery Cafe arose from the efforts of formerly homeless men to generate pocket money by selling bread to their affluent South End neighbors in the off hours of the soup kitchen. Business grew and Haley House chose to create a vibrant Cafe and training program in Dudley Square, an underserved neighborhood that was requesting a family-friendly venue for healthy food and community-based programming. ""Food With Purpose"" captures the essence of Haley House Bakery Café, where healthful, affordable, ethnically inspired food is served in a socially responsible, community centered environment that trains and hires people with more regard for their potential than their past. Located at 12 Dade Street in Roxbury, the Bakery Café is open seven days a week. (Currently on construction-related hiatus.)

Population(s) Served

Haley House's urban agriculture initiative was piloted adjacent to the Soup Kitchen in the McKinley Collaborative Garden, a school-based community garden that aims to encourage healthy lifestyles and healthy community at the McKinley South End Academy. In 2014, we received permission to break ground at Thornton Gardens in the Highland Park section of our Roxbury neighborhood, in partnership with Hawthorne Youth and Community Center and with the help of strong neighborhood support.
