Join The Mission Continues' Boston Platoon on Saturday, Sept. 28th for a day of service at The Home for Little Wanderers- Somerville Village Program. The innovative program is designed to enable young women who are homeless or at-risk for homelessness to pursue post-secondary education by providing housing, therapeutic, emotional, and educational supports.
Together will be creating two new community spaces for the young women at the program for fitness and recreation. We will be putting down fitness flooring and new lighting for a yoga/fitness room on the 3rd floor to promote health and wellness. On the first floor we will be painting and updating the art and social room to create a space that supports creative expression and community-building.
We will have water, snacks, and lunch for volunteers.

Inclement Weather Plan :

Certain host organizations, such as schools, may prohibit volunteers with certain types of criminal convictions from participating in a service project. Accordingly, The Mission Continues is requesting your consent to conduct a criminal background check in the event that your Platoon is engaging in a service project with a host organization that requires a criminal background check. By checking the box below, you authorize The Mission Continues to conduct a criminal background check.
If such a background check is required, it will be completed and used in accordance with applicable law. The Mission Continues does not automatically disqualify persons from Platoons based on criminal convictions. We want as many people as possible to have the opportunity to move forward in their lives through service, at the same time that we seek to protect the communities we serve together.
