The number of people experiencing homelessness and housing instability in Massachusetts remains very high with over 17,000 homeless individuals in the state (as of January 2017 according to Massachusetts Coalition for the Homeless).
We have 22 units of supportive permanent housing for formerly homeless adults and 50 shelter beds in Salem. In Beverly, we have 34 beds and 5 apartments for formerly homeless adults.
Lifebridge primarily serves individual men and women from Essex County including Salem, Beverly, Lynn, Danvers, Peabody, Gloucester, Swampscott and Marblehead. We offer day services to community residents, those who do not reside at Seeds of Hope with basic needs and ongoing support. Such services include access to our nurse, showers, clothing, and personal care products/basic supplies.
Seeds of Hope is the only shelter in Peabody, Danvers, Salem, Beverly and Swampscott that serves homeless unattached women.
