Come one, Come all. On April 27 afternoon (1:30pm registration), the 5th Annual Walk to Prevent Homelessness in Somerville will again take off from the Somerville High School.
The proceeds from the walk help those at risk of homelessness to secure housing by providing assistance with security deposits, back rent, or moving costs. Last year’s walk raised over $28,000 and provided over 100 adults and children avoid the devastation of homelessness.
