Mission and Work


Pine Street Inn partners with homeless individuals to help them move from the streets and shelter to a home and assists formerly homeless individuals in retaining housing. We provide street outreach, emergency services, supportive housing,job training and connections to employment. We tirelessly advocate for collaborative solutions to end homelessness.

Program 1

$17.0m annual program spend • Emergency servicesPine Street Inn's emergency service programs provide 100% of Boston's adult homeless street outreach and the largest single share of emergency shelter beds in Boston. In fy18 we provided shelter and street outreach services to over 7,000 individuals. The program goal is first to preserve life safety for all who need it and, through assessment and strategic housing placement services, help individuals move from the street and shelter to permanent housing as quickly as possible and ultimately prevent chronic homelessness.

Program 2

$18.8m annual program spend • Housing placementpine street's supportive housing program provides the largest single share - 30% - of permanent housing dedicated to homeless individuals in the city. The goal of the program is to ensure that individuals with a long history of homelessness have a permanent home and gain greater levels of self-sufficiency over time. The program encompasses more than 950 units of housing and the clinical support services needed to stabilize chronically homeless and disabled individuals in that housing. In fy'18, pine street's housing program supported 981 individuals in housing with 91% of those individuals retaining their housing one year or more. Fifty-six tenants reached self-sufficiency and moved on from psi's supportive housing to independent community-based living. This created an opportunity to offer housing to 56 new tenants within our existing housing portfolio.

Program 3

$4.1m annual program spend • Operations/supportive servicesPine Street Inn partners with both public and private funders in delivering housing placement and stabilization services. In fy18, more than 1,100 individuals from the street and shelter were housed through these services. Our services are based on evidence-based models, innovation and ongoing research, which leverages all possible resources to bring individuals out of homelessness as quickly as possible. Our housing placement services starts at the front door with triage where we work with individuals immediately to resolve their housing crisis. Last year 30% who received triage services were reunified with family, friends and communities in less than 30 days length of shelter stay. For individuals with more complex housing barriers, rapid rehousing services provide housing search, placement and community-based stabilization services. For chronically homeless individuals, a special housing navigation team works in conjunction with the city of Boston continuum of care to engage and match individuals with the availability of permanent supportive housing. Since the inception of these housing placement programs, the demand for chronic shelter beds has reduced by 50%.
