Advocate of the Year — “Making it happen” for students

This year, HERN is creating traditions. We will start by celebrating the work of our advocates.

We are accepting nominations for our "2011 Advocate of the Year". To nominate school-based liaisons, shelter/provider personnel and other individuals that support services and programs for homeless students for recognition as HERN’s "Homeless Advocate of the Year", download the application.

The 2011 Advocate of the Year will be recognized during HERN’s twentieth-anniversary celebration. There will be more information to come soon. For more information, please contact Mary William at 617-635-8037.

HERN Students Give Back

Care-packages for Haitians in Need

The recent earthquake in Haiti negatively affected some of the families we serve. This summer, all our summer program students will work together to make care-packages to support families in Haiti that have been negatively impacted.

Cradles to Crayons — Kids helping Kids

HERN is sponsoring a volunteer event this summer at Cradles to Crayons (C2C). C2C is a local charity supporting homeless and low-income children. Our group will package donations of new and gently used children’s goods into “C2C KidPacks”. These KidPacks are ordered for specific kids in need. So, as we put these KidPacks together, we will know someone out there will benefit from our work.

Expressions Gallery — All about the kids!

Our Summer Circle of Fun and Enrichment students express themselves creatively through many ways during the summer program - painting, arts and crafts, writing, etc. We typically celebrate their work by displaying it in front of parents and friends during the program’s closing ceremony. This year, we are also celebrating some of our student’s creative expressions by displaying right here on our website. Please check them out below.
