  • St. Francis House
    The legacy of St. Francis of Assisi permeates the air at St. Francis House. There, staff and volunteers work to emulate the devotion he showed people throughout his life by assisting people who are underserved or experiencing homelessness. They provide support and care for all of their guests in the form of basic necessities, such as food, clothing, showers, and medical care, as well as guidance services. Every day, more than 800 men and women seek aid at St. Francis House and take part in its counseling and rehabilitation services. The counseling department provides individual therapy, legal aid, and immigration services, whereas the rehabilitation services help people overcome challenges stemming from mental illness and substance abuse. To propel its guests into self-sufficiency, St. Francis House also offers a 14-week job- and life-skills training program to help individuals who have dealt with drug addiction, homelessness, mental illness, or incarceration find careers.

  • Boston Alliance of Gay Lesbian Bisexual Transgend
    Founded in 1980 as an advocacy and support organization, The Boston Alliance of Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgender Youth (BAGLY) has always been on the forefront of issues facing young queer people. Such is its commitment to young LGBTQ voices that its leadership is made up of young people, with adults serving as advisors. BAGLY's work is twofold. First, it educates and supports its young members, all of whom are 22 years old or younger. At its newly renovated center, young people can receive health education and care, get school and GED help, search for jobs, and join support groups that provide a safe space to discuss myriad issues facing LGBTQ youth. But BAGLY isn't just focused on serious subjects?it's also home to the nation's first prom for young LGBTQ people. The 2009 dance became the organization's most attended event, with more than 1,700 people celebrating at Boston City Hall. Additionally, BAGLY advocates for queer rights, which have included pressuring the City of Boston to issue a permit for the Pride Day Parade and getting the term sexual orientation added to the Massachusetts Students? Rights Law. BAGLY also educates people outside its doors, including starting the first LGBTQ youth speakers series in public schools and being among the first to discuss issues facing transgender youth with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
