One Family aims to prevent homelessness and break the cycle of family poverty in Massachusetts by promoting pathways to economic independence through advocacy, education, and innovation. We envision a Commonwealth where all families have secure housing, access to education leading to employment, and the ability to build assets to create a brighter future. One Family believes that if policies are focused on prevention and programs are designed to promote opportunities, then we can end family homelessness in Massachusetts.
