Dead & Company is partnering with Positive Legacy to give fans an opportunity to have a positive impact in the Boston Area by supporting facility improvements at the Pine Street Inn Women's Shelter in Dorchester, MA.
Pine Street Inn partners with homeless individuals to help them move from the streets and shelter to a home and assists formerly homeless individuals in retaining housing. They provide street outreach, emergency services, supportive housing, job training and connections to employment. They tirelessly advocate for collaborative solutions to end homelessness.
Pine Street Inn's guests often struggle to get back on their feet only to discover that housing is beyond their grasp. For many, the cost of market-rate housing is a barrier. For others, the difficulty of managing daily life on their own in the face of ill health, old age or a disability makes most housing options unworkable. Since 1984, Pine Street Inn has developed permanent supportive housing for homeless individuals with on-site support staff. A typical residence includes private rooms with common kitchens, bathrooms and living areas. Tenants pay up to 30 percent of their annual income (many make less than $9,000 annually) as rent. On-site staff helps tenants to connect with community services, maintain stability, and avoid a return to homelessness. Specialized housing is available to for elderly tenants, individuals who have experienced chronic homelessness, those with a history of mental illness, or individuals living with HIV/AIDS.
