Partnering to End Homelessness with Caritas Communities!

For nearly 30 years, John M. Corcoran & Corcoran Management Company have been a driving force in working to end homelessness and to provide stable and affordable housing for those who are less fortunate. CMC is proud to be a leading partner and sponsor of Caritas Communities, a non-profit organization that owns and manages 29 residential properties and homes throughout the Greater Boston area that offer a place for those struggling with homelessness to be able to call home. On Thursday November 13th, Caritas held its annual end of the year fundraiser dinner and gala at the Sheraton Boston. As is the case with many non-profits today, Caritas faces challenges when it comes to fundraising and meeting the growing demand of those in need of emergency assistance. Last night’s dinner, like years past, was a tremendous success in raising money to provide shelter, food, educational programs, clothing, and much more for those in need.

Each year, at least two individuals whose lives have been changed for the better by Caritas deliver a speech in front of 800+ people, not an easy task for even the most confident of public speakers. The stories they tell of tragedy, abuse, neglect, and resiliency within their own journey shows the true meaning and importance of Caritas and the work they do.

Corcoran communities throughout the Boston area are currently accepting a number of items to be donated to the residents of Caritas Communities. Items that are in the highest of demand this winter season include winter clothing, socks, undershirts, soap, shampoo, deodorant, toothpaste, mouthwash, and face and hand towels. We would like to thank all who donate and continue to improve the quality of life for those who call Caritas home!
