Circle of Hope is a nonprofit organization based in Needham, Massachusetts. The mission of Circle of Hope is to provide homeless children, women, and men in Boston and Metro West with clothing and necessities in order to preserve and enhance overall health and personal dignity. By continually providing seasonally appropriate clothing, shoes, linens, and basic toiletries to 21 carefully vetted homeless shelters and clinics, Circle of Hope gives the most vulnerable members of our community the opportunity to protect themselves from the dangers of illness and disease that come from being homeless in New England. With the help of more than 90 volunteers, Circle of Hope makes 8-10 deliveries per week to homeless shelters and clinics and serves more than 5,500 children and adults per year. Read more...

Annual Campaign

Circle of Hope’s Annual Campaign has launched!

Give the gift of health to homeless infants, children, women, and men in 2019 by contributing to the Annual Campaign. You will support people like the homeless mother and her premature twin babies Circle of Hope helped earlier this year at Boston Health Care for the Homeless Program. We were able to provide warm clothing and a Welcome Baby Bag full of newborn essentials to these vulnerable infants because of generous donors like you. These crucial items helped the babies stay warm and clean during their fragile first months while they continued to grow and develop.

Go-To Crew

Looking for a way to help? Join Circle of Hope’s “Go-To Crew!” Members of the Go-To Crew receive email requests for specific donations when a particular need arises. Circle of Hope occasionally receives urgent requests from our partner shelters and clinics when their homeless clients need help immediately. For example, our partner domestic violence shelters have asked for clothing for mothers and their children after they fled abuse with no time to prepare or pack.

As a member of the Go-To Crew, you will receive an email asking for the specific donations. If you have them or are able to purchase them, donate them to COH as soon as possible. If you are not able to respond to a request, that’s fine, too - just keep an eye out for the next one!
