The Inn Between is an emergency program for homeless families. Founded
in 1985, our original building, a lovely Victorian home, houses six families at a time,
and includes one fully handicapped-accessible room. In this program we
also maintain a "community room," available for homeless
families who are ineligible for shelter assistance from the state.
In addition to the Victorian home in Peabody, the Inn Between program also serves families housed in additional facilities: 6 families are housed at the Inn Transition facility, and an additional 5 are in scattered sites. In total, the Inn Between program serves 17 families at any given time.
Some of the important programs
and services offered to our families include:
- Ongoing meetings with a case manager to coordinate health care, children's needs (counseling,
school transportation, summer camp, day care), and parents'
needs (education, employment, legal, mental health, etc.)
- Assist families on a daily basis in their effort to obtain permanent,
- Life skills development, including
budgeting, nutrition, health, parenting skills and successful
- Provide educational programs by community service providers, volunteers
and businesses (GED, ESL, etc.)
- Computer access to work on resumes, letters, and hone
- Household chores, cooking, and shopping
as shared responsibilities.
- Follow-up by a case manager who
tracks families who move on for a full year, and sometimes longer
