Over the past decade HomeStart has developed an economically sustainable and scalable program that prevents homelessness. The Renew Collaborative is a disruptive social innovation premised on a simple cost-benefit argument for the benefit of eviction prevention and driven by the stunning social outcomes of the program. Our goal is to eliminate homelessness due to non-payment eviction for families with subsidies and the working poor in Massachusetts.
