Betty’s Place: Betty's Rapid Rehousing is a program that can accommodate up to 10 women at one time. Residents are provided with Project Place programming and supports while making the transition from the emergency shelter system to independent living. Betty's provides each resident with a room of her own in a safe, clean environment and two meals a day. Residents also receive our wraparound support services to address barriers in finding and obtaining employment and housing. Betty's Rapid Rehousing hopes to transition women to independent living within 3-6 months. Applications are accepted on an ongoing basis. To refer someone or apply, call 617-482-1126.

Residents must have income, lead a sober lifestyle and qualify for disability (substance abuse can be considered a disability).
