Helping people experiencing homelessness in Boston

JLCT St Francis House

St Francis House is the largest day shelter in Massachusetts, supporting over 7,000 people experiencing homelessness each year.

The charity is based in the heart of downtown Boston, near John Laing’s MBTA AFC 2.0 project.

John Laing has supported St Francis House since 2020, helping the charity to remain open during the peak of the Covid-19 pandemic. As well as providing financial support, colleagues have also taken part in various activities including a fundraising run. The charity is also supported by the John Laing Charitable Trust.

Karen LaFrazia, President and CEO of St Francis House, said: “We are grateful to John Laing and the John Laing Charitable Trust for their support in making our refuge services possible. Their generosity helps makes sure guests can rely on us 365 days a year.”
