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 22 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 served more than 6,600 children and adults last year. Read more...
Circle of Hope’s third annual spring fundraiser, HOPE Blooms, took place Saturday, May 11 at Needham Golf Club. Nearly 150 guests came together to celebrate Circle of Hope’s tenth anniversary and we are thrilled to report that the event raised $120,000 to support the homeless infants, children, women, and men we serve!
We are grateful to Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley for speaking at HOPE Blooms. Thank you to Charles River Apparel for being our Presenting Sponsor and to all of our sponsors for making HOPE Blooms such a success!

This year, we are celebrating ten years of impact at Circle of Hope!
In the ten years since Circle of Hope was established, sadly the rate of homelessness has dramatically increased. At Circle of Hope, we have kept pace with the increase in homelessness by partnering with 22 homeless shelters, clinics, and programs throughout Boston and MetroWest. Last year, we provided $652,616 worth of clothing and necessities to 6,600 homeless children, women, and men.
A recent 3-alarm fire in Dorchester left a family with teenage children homeless. Despite losing everything they owned, they only asked for a winter coat for their teenage daughter. Circle of Hope brought the winter coat they needed, along with a full wardrobe of clothing in the girl’s size.
