We are highlighting this organization because it engages in a “community justice”-oriented approach to political change.
Haley House is dedicated to helping those made vulnerable by the harshest effects of inequality move toward wholeness and economic independence. It uses food and the power of community to break down barriers between people, transfer new skills, and revitalize neighborhoods.
Example of their community justice framework:
We seek to honor the intrinsic goodness and dignity of every person and challenge systems of privilege and injustice in our society. We believe in the possibility of transformation through personal relationships and engaged community.
Types of programs and projects:
- Transitional Employment Program
- Manage affordable housing units in Boston
- Arts Programming – visual arts, poetry slams, etc.
