Nubian Square Night Outreach to Homeless

November 10, 2021 from 11:00 pm - November 11, 2021 from 2:00 am

Free

Join the Mayor’s Office of Faith Based Initiatives for an outreach alongside partnering organizations that contribute to improving the Nubian Square area. On November 10th,  from 11 pm-2 am, our initiative will conduct a nighttime outreach geared towards individuals that remain in the area because of homelessness.   We will be supported by our usual group of partners, including Pine Street Inn, that will register our homeless population as well as take them to Pine Street Inn for the night with the hopes of helping individuals off the streets.

We are asking individuals to meet inside of the the Bolling Building lobby at 11 pm.  We will walk together to outside in Nubian Square where faith-based leaders from Roxbury will begin our night with a blessing of prayer.  We will then walk to the Blair’s Parking lot and different team leads will walk other volunteer groups through the neighborhood to identify
homeless folks in need of services. We will encourage those homeless individuals to take refuge for the night at Pine Street Inn with the hopes of utilizing the services for future purposes.

Once again, this is an initiative led by community partners and organizations, law enforcement and religious institutions and organizations for the betterment of the Nubian Community. This strategy is completely different from the harm reduction strategy at Mass and Cass. Please come and join us for the evening to observe the tremendous success we’ve had in the area.

Learn more about the history of this initiative through this flyer.
