Somerville opens Engagement Center for unhoused

Mayor Katjana Ballantyne, in partnership with the Somerville Homeless Coalition, has announced the recent opening of a new Engagement Center to support Somerville’s unhoused residents.

“The opening of Somerville’s new daytime Engagement Center is a game changer, allowing us to provide more robust support services for some of our most vulnerable community members,” said Mayor Katjana Ballantyne. “Many shelters in our area only operate at night, meaning unhoused individuals are not able to access any support services during daytime hours, a huge roadblock when looking for work and housing. I want to thank everyone who has worked tirelessly to make this center a reality, and I look forward to seeing the positive impact it will have on our community.”
