Established in 1990, the agency’s mission is to help homeless and at risk families learn the skills necessary to break the cycle of homelessness and poverty. With sites in Roxbury and Dorchester, we provide a safe, community setting with customized services to give homeless moms and kids the help and skills they need to succeed. We believe: Family homelessness can be solved. Motivated homeless families can break the generational cycle of poverty if given the right resources: o A safe place to stay o Access to support, education, job and life skills training o Support for their children Children of all ages are traumatized by homelessness and poverty but with proper attention and support can thrive. Every homeless family needs a customized plan with concrete goals and support to become self-sufficient. Brookview House serves the following people: Women committed to do what it takes to lift their families out of homelessness. Their children, who have been traumatized by instability Children and adults in the community at risk of becoming homeless Brookview targets families -- more than a third of the homeless population - at risk of long-term public dependency, who demonstrate the capacity to move toward self-sufficiency.
