WALK for the Homeless

For 30 years the WALK for the Homeless has been a source of hope, reassurance and community engagement for the Greater Worcester Community.

Please get all final fundraising in as soon as possible. If you would like to contribute, it is not too late to donate.

Over 30 years, together we have:

  • Assisted over 100,000 families by preventing homelessness, providing quality shelter and resources to move to stable, safe housing.
  • Raised $1.7 million to support vital homelessness prevention, quality shelter and housing stabilization programs.
  • Walked 68,000 miles with over 17,000 people to raise funds and build community support for ending homelessness.

With your help, this year we:

  • Raised $35,000+ through online donations.
  • Will help 350 families maintain safe and stable housing.
  • Will assist over 1000 additional people who need access to safe shelter, nutritional meals, and the household goods to move beyond homelessness.
  • Brought together over 1,500 community members to demonstrate a community commitment to ending family homelessness.

Everyone who participated in the WALK made a difference! 


Recognizing the dignity of all, CMHA leads a collaborative response to homelessness that fosters long-term housing stability through prevention, quality services, education and advocacy.


Leading the way to create a community where everyone has a home through accessing the tools and resources to obtain residential and economic stability.
