Housing Families Inc (HFI), a Malden-based non-profit organization with a mission of ending family homelessness, recently held a Field Day event, hosted by the HFI Young Professional Advisory Council (YPAC), to benefit homeless families in the greater Boston area. The event was held at Lincoln Commons in Malden, MA, featuring activities including corn hole, sack races, face painting, a bouncy house and raffle giveaways. Special appearances were made by Malden’s Mayor Gary Christenson, School Committee member Catherine Bordonaro and the Malden Fire Department who stopped by with their firetruck offering a fun interactive experience for children. With countless community members participating and generous donations this event exceeded expectations. “Housing Families is overwhelmed by the support and kindness offered by the Malden community and all of our volunteers, as a result of these efforts HFI will continue supporting families in need throughout greater Boston,” said Ed Cameron, CEO of Housing Families Inc. HFI is proud to recognize BOND , the northeast’s premier full-service construction management and general contracting company, and Nickerson, a full-service marketing and communications agency specializing in real estate, as Home Sweet Home Sponsors, as well as Income Tax Plus, a Massachusetts based financial service company, for supporting the anticipated event. Active in the area for 30 years, HFI has established several initiatives to combat homelessness and disenfranchisement by providing temporary shelter and affordable housing options to over 3,600 homeless and at-risk families in the greater Boston area.
