Non-Profits

Stop Handgun Violence
A nonprofit organization committed to the prevention of gun violence through education, public awareness, effective law enforcement and “common sense” gun laws. With 100 gun deaths, 150 injuries and a mass shooting in the U.S. every day it’s long past time we start putting lives before politics. We are not calling for restrictions to our constitutional rights, but just common sense legislation that will help reduce preventable gun violence and save lives. Help us prevent firearm violence through public awareness, sensible legislation, and support for law enforcement – without banning most guns.

Friends of Boston’s Homeless
We believe homelessness in Boston can be solved. Friends of Boston’s Homeless supports solutions-oriented programs with proven track records that help homeless individuals transition from the streets and shelters to lead stable, independent lives in homes of their own. The final transition steps out of homelessness are often the most crucial, and we make them happen. Please join us!
