How You Can Help Circle of Hope Boston


Your financial support enables Circle of Hope to purchase items for families and individuals that are not donated, such as special-sized clothing, toiletries, socks and undergarments. Additionally, our need for paid services, delivery transportation, staffing and operational costs continues to escalate so that we can meet the demands of supporting the growing homeless population.
