24 Farnsworth MA Emergency Shelter Information Session March 1st

updated 3/11 with UUA donation opportunities.

Dear Neighbors,

Many of you have reached out asking how you may offer support to the guest families temporarily staying at 24 Farnsworth. The UUA is offering donation opportunities here

On February 7th, the Mayor's Office of Neighborhood Services notified FPNA that the Healey-Driscoll Administration was considering establishing an Emergency Family Shelter at 24 Farnsworth Street, the world headquarters of the Unitarian Universalist Association. Over the past three weeks, FPNA created two lists of questions with the assistance of neighbors closest to the site. They can be found here. Responses have been posted here. For more information and for contact information, visit the SafetyNet Shelter Feedback - United Way of Massachusetts Bay (

At Tuesday night's FPNA Neighborhood Gathering, the Healey-Driscoll Administration informed the neighborhood that a Shelter will be opening as soon as next week at 24 Farnsworth Street.

On behalf of the Healey-Driscoll Administration, the United Way and the Unitarian Universalist Association, we are helping to spread the word that they will be hosting a Fort Point Neighborhood Information Session on Friday, March 1st from 6pm to 7:30pm via zoom regarding the Emergency Family Shelter at 24 Farnsworth.  If you have any questions, suggestions or concerns, we encourage you to attend

As we hear more, we will be in touch.
