Belonging To Each Other is a non-profit organization based in Falmouth, Massachusetts. Our mission is to provide housing to our homeless neighbors during the winter months. With the assistance of over 100 volunteers from the community, we are able to help over a dozen men & women each winter. We not only provide housing but deliver food and assist our clients with accessing various services to help them transition to stable housing.
Troy's Take: Even 'Me' Could Be Homeless
Saturday, December 21, was the winter solstice, also known as the shortest day of the year. As a result, that night was the longest night of the year. It was a clear, cold December night. The stars shone brightly except when obscured by the transient misty clouds of human breath. For those celebrating the season by enjoying the lights on the Village Green or warm fires, friends and food, these days can be some of the most memorable of the year.
However, for too many of our Falmouth brethren with no place to sleep, no place to call home, cold nights mean potential peril. For Falmouth’s homeless, the loss of a home can mean the loss of a life. A local nonprofit aimed at reducing and eliminating that potential peril joined many others across the nation in also recognizing December 21 as National Homeless Persons’ Memorial Day and raising both funds and awareness to provide a local solution.
