Mission Statement

Pine Street Inn partners with homeless individuals to help them move from the streets and shelter to a home and assists formerly homeless individuals in retaining housing. We provide street outreach, emergency services, supportive housing, job training and connections to employment. We tirelessly advocate for collaborative solutions to end homelessness.

Our vision is a permanent home and community for everyone.

Background Statement

Founded in 1969 as an emergency shelter, Pine Street Inn has evolved over nearly five decades to become New England's leading and largest provider of resources for homeless and formerly homeless adults. It has expanded the scope and reach of its services and today provides permanent supportive housing, clinical services, job training and essential emergency services including shelter and food.

Pine Street works with 2,000 homeless individuals daily and more than 7,600 annually, providing the short-term remedies and long-term solutions to homelessness. Its aim is to help individuals gain stability and reach their highest level of independence by offering a wide range of services to every person who turns to the Inn for help.

Pine Street has undergone a strategic transformation in recent years, shifting its primary focus from shelter to housing to provide lasting solutions to homeless. Following the completion of a 300-unit housing expansion plan, Pine Street now provides a home and supportive services to more than 850 formerly homeless adults in Greater Boston. In the process, the organization has “tipped the balance” in its work and now serves more people each night in housing (56%) than in shelters (44%). Pine Street Inn is working on the front lines to provide innovative new solutions to homelessness at every stage of its work.

Pine Street Inn marks its 50th anniversary in 2019 and a confluence of factors present an unprecedented opportunity to achieve a breakthrough level of impact solving homelessness. In recognition of this milestone anniversary, we recently launched a new public awareness campaign, “Moving Out of Homelessness.”
As Pine Street Inn looks to the future, we will do three things - continue to provide safe refuge for those most in need through shelter, to expand our supportive housing stock and to scale up new “upstream” strategies to prevent long-term homelessness before it sets in. We will also continue to play an active role in systems change, serving as a leader implementing innovative and replicable programs.

Impact Statement

With each person housed, we are closer to ending homelessness. In Fiscal Year 2018, our progress included: 
  • housing 1,135 people, a 36% increase on the number we placed the prior year; and
  • maintaining a housing retention rate of 91% within our supportive housing.
On the way to achieving these results, we served over 7,600 men and women. Many were facing complex, serious challenges and the worst days of their lives. Our work encompassed:
  • sheltering more than 670 people each night;
  • offering life-saving food, blankets and access to shelter and housing to more than 115 people every day who sleep on the streets; and
  • preparing more than 800,000 nutritious meals throughout the year.
Our accelerated progress is driven by innovative pilot programs that are creating new pathways from shelter to housing and preventing chronic homelessness before it sets in. While continuing to provide the services mentioned above, we aim to achieve the following in the upcoming year:
  • Maintain a strong housing retention rate in more than 850 units of Pine Street Inn housing that provide a home to formerly homeless men and women;
  • Provide additional paths out of shelter and into housing by expanding the innovative Front-Door Triage, Rapid Rehousing and Housing Placement pilots; and
  • Open a 52-unit housing site for seniors and continue plans to develop 200 more units of housing.

Needs Statement

Pine Street is seeking grants and contributions that are essential to help achieve its goals. The organization is committed to being good stewards of every philanthropic gift and directs this essential support in the following ways:

  • To reduce individuals’ length of stay on the street and in shelters through a full array of emergency services as well as housing placement assistance, within and beyond Pine Street’s 850 units of supportive housing;
  • To bridge the funding gap between revenues from government contracts, fees and services, and the actual annual cost of operating shelter and housing programs;
  • To continuously assess the effectiveness and efficiency of its programs and services in addressing the evolving needs of the homeless population.

CEO Statement

In 2019, we are marking a major milestone: 50 years in the Boston community. As I reflect on the 35 years that I have been here in roles as an administrative assistant, in development, in the program area, and now, as President – I am both humbled by and proud of the progress that we have made as an organization.

Over the past 50 years, our programs have continued to evolve to meet the needs of our community. We started out in 1969 as an emergency shelter for 200 men suffering from alcoholism, led by the inspirational Paul Sullivan. Today, we operate four emergency shelters and 40 houses – collectively supporting close to 2,000 men and women every day.
Since its inauguration in 1986, as a result of someone dying on the street in the frigid cold, our Outreach van has not missed a night on the streets in support of those staying outside. Today, we have implemented programs and resources that will help stop homelessness before it begins. More than ever, we are collaborating with the City of Boston and like-minded organizations to create a truly cohesive approach to ending homelessness.
While tremendous progress has been made in solving homelessness for men and women, there is still much to be done. We will continue to advocate for the most vulnerable men and women in our community, working to end homelessness – and better yet, preventing it from happening in the first place. This work would not be possible without the dedication of our staff, donors, volunteers, and Board of Directors, for which we are deeply grateful.

Emergency Shelter

Pine Street Inn is Boston’s largest provider of shelter for homeless individuals. Its four shelters represent 46% of the overall shelter beds for individuals in the city, serving more than 670 men and women each night of the year.

Each of Pine Street’s four overnight shelters – the Men’s Inn, the Women’s Inn, the Shattuck Shelter and Holy Family Inn – provide a consistent array of services designed to help individuals return as quickly as possible to housing while providing essential life services.

Basic life safety services include temporary beds or cots with fresh linens, dinner and breakfast, access to showers, emergency clothing, and access to onsite medical clinics and behavioral health specialists.

Pine Street Inn is implementing a variety of innovative pilots to accelerate each guest’s path from shelter to housing and to prevent chronic homelessness before it sets in. These include Front-Door Triage, Rapid Rehousing and the Housing Placement Program. Additional services include on-site job training programs and referrals for recovery and sobriety programs.

Budget  21,600,000
Category  Human Services, General/Other
Population Served Adults Homeless
Program Short-Term Success 

Each night, Pine Street Inn provides safe refuge and sustenance to more than 670 men and women who have no place else to turn. When all beds are full, cots and mats provide shelter in our lobbies.

Program Long-Term Success 

With each person housed, we are closer to a lasting solution to homelessness.

Pine Street Inn is increasingly focused on streamlining the shelter system and scaling up new and proven strategies to accelerate each guest’s path from shelter to housing. These strategies – Front-Door Triage, Rapid Rehousing, the Housing Placement Program and Permanent Supportive Housing – contribute to Pine Street Inn’s strong track record solving homelessness.


In Fiscal Year 2018, across all programs, Pine Street Inn helped 1,135 people move from homelessness to housing – more than ever before in one year and a 36% increase from the prior year.

Program Success Monitored By 

New guests to Pine Street Inn’s shelters participate in a Front-Door Triage process that determines the right level of support for them to return to housing. Guests collaborate with staff to create a plan to chart a path back to housing.

Pine Street Inn uses Efforts to Outcomes (ETO) software to track progress agency-wide. Key annual indicators within Emergency Shelter include the number of people served, the number of people who move from shelter to housing and the median length of homelessness.
Examples of Program Success 

Barbara, who is in her 50s, used to work as a union carpenter. She became homeless after injuries and a heart condition made it difficult to work.

She then came to the Women’s Inn and was surprised to see an acquaintance, Jeanne, in her 60s, who used to be a recovery counselor but had also fallen into hard times because of illness. The two friends both became part of the Rapid Rehousing program and were encouraged to look for a shared apartment.


It took time and persistence, but they recently moved into a shared two-bedroom apartment in Dorchester.  Reflecting on her journey, Barbara says, "When I first came to the Women's Inn, I felt scared and hopeless. Now I have courage."


“We are happy, joyous and free,” Barbara says. “We have a home.”

Job Training & Workforce Development

While homelessness is complex, we know it can be solved. Besides housing, another pivotal part of the solution is employment.

Each year, more than 160 men and women enroll in Pine Street Inn’s job training programs in food services and housekeeping. Participants learn technical skills as well as soft skills such as punctuality, team work, financial literacy and interviewing techniques.

A key aspect of job training at Pine Street Inn is its iCater social enterprise, a for-fee service food company that prepares and delivers meals to corporate and non-profit clients throughout Boston.
Budget  2,600,000
Category  Human Services, General/Other
Population Served Adults Homeless
Program Short-Term Success 

Short-term success is measured by the participation of trainees in each job-training program. Measures include: attendance, punctuality, engagement in classroom and work-related activities, teamwork and other markers of personal growth.

Program Long-Term Success 

The goals of Pine Street’s job training programs are to prepare participants to re-enter the workforce, to help them find viable employment and to ensure that they retain their jobs.

Program Success Monitored By 

Pine Street Inn uses Efforts to Outcomes (ETO) software to track program measures. Results are analyzed by program staff and senior leaders in order to measure and understand results, as well as inform strategic planning.

Examples of Program Success 

Each spring, Pine Street Inn hosts a graduation ceremony for training program graduates. Last year, 123 graduates in caps and gowns walked proudly across the stage to receive their certificates. For some, it was their first-ever graduation.

One of the Graduates was Kenneth, who now works at the AC Hotel. A graduate of the Housekeeping Training Program, he was chosen as the class graduation speaker.

"Not too long ago, I was in a deep depression, at the bottom of the darkest hole ever in my life. I was homeless and addicted,” he told the audience. “Today, I have a job and a place to live. And most important – I have hope for the future.”

Permanent Housing

Homelessness is one of the most complex social problems in the United States. It is often a compounded set of factors that affect homeless individuals, including lack of affordable housing, poverty, job or income loss, mental illness, substance use and/or health problems.

Efforts to solve this problem are increasingly focused on permanent supportive housing. With more than 30 years of experience in housing development, Pine Street Inn is at the forefront of these efforts, supporting our tenants in achieving the highest level of self-sufficiency possible. Currently, Pine Street owns and/or manages buildings throughout Greater Boston, providing permanent housing for more than 850 formerly homeless individuals - now housing tenants.


The support for tenants within our permanent supportive houses centers on the relationship of trust and respect that develops between each tenant and his or her Case Manager. Case management includes assistance with goal setting and independent living skills such as cooking and budgeting as well as access to medical, mental health and recovery resources and links to job training and employment options.


The underlying premise of our work in housing is that by providing a home and a supportive community - not simply a place to stay - we can help people make tangible progress to stability and self-sufficiency. While many tenants make Pine Street Inn’s housing their permanent home, some gradually acquire the skills and confidence to move to fully independent living. When they do so, their units become available to end chronic homelessness for others. In this way, our buildings are a renewable resource and preserving their stability ensures that we can further our mission to end homelessness.
Budget  15,400,000
Category  Housing, General/Other
Population Served Homeless Adults
Program Short-Term Success 

With the help of case managers and on-site support services, more than 90% of tenants in Pine Street's permanent housing have remained in housing and avoided a return to homelessness, exceeding the national benchmark.

Program Long-Term Success 

Access to housing is a key social determinant of health. An additional benefit of permanent supportive housing is an expected reduction in healthcare costs. Pine Street Inn partnered with the Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts Foundation and Dr. Thomas Byrne of Boston University on research that found that permanent supportive housing helped reduce health care costs for chronically homeless adults, on average, by more than $11,000 per person annually.

Program Success Monitored By 

Program success is monitored by the staff, case managers and house managers and is directly related to the stability, health and progress of residents. Pine Street Inn shares best practices and lessons learned with colleagues and organizations in the fields of housing and human services.

Pine Street Inn uses Efforts to Outcomes (ETO) software to track program measures. Results are analyzed by program staff and senior leaders in order to measure and understand results, as well as inform strategic planning. Key annual indicators include:

  • Housing retention rate; and
  • Percentage of tenants who achieve stability in housing.
Examples of Program Success 

Don, who is 57 and blind, hails from Malden, Massachusetts. For much of his adult life, he suffered from alcoholism. At one point, he couldn’t go a single day without drinking and finally hit rock bottom.

Don became homeless and wound up in the Men’s Inn shelter at Pine Street. Staff connected him to medical and mental health support systems, where he got sober. Then they helped him find permanent housing.


Don is now settled in one of Pine Street’s permanent supportive houses in Dorchester. His favorite part about his studio apartment is having his own bathroom and bed.


“Moving in to this place means freedom. It’s a new adventure,” Don says. “I remember when I walked into my apartment, I kissed the floor. I couldn’t believe it.”


Street Outreach

Pine Street Inn's Street Outreach teams offer clothing, food, blankets, health care referrals and human contact to homeless men and women who choose not to come into shelter. The team works to build trust with these individuals, who often struggle with mental illness and addiction.

Through these relationships, many chronically homeless people have moved from the streets to permanent housing. Pine Street Inn is the only organization offering nightly street outreach in Boston. Our vans travel the city streets from 9pm to 5am, providing life-saving assistance and compassion to men and women on the streets.

Budget  2,200,000
Category  Human Services, General/Other Services for the Homeless
Population Served Adults Poor,Economically Disadvantaged,Indigent
Program Short-Term Success 

In Fiscal Year 2018, Outreach Services helped transition 62 homeless individuals from the streets and into permanent supportive housing.

Program Long-Term Success 

Long-term success relies on the collaborative efforts of the City of Boston, the Department of Mental Health and Pine Street Inn’s street outreach team, all working together to target those who are deeply entrenched in homelessness and move them into supportive housing.

Program Success Monitored By 

Program success is monitored on a daily basis and is measured by the number of interactions and the number of services delivered to the street homeless population. More and more, because of Pine Street’s years of daily service to these most vulnerable individuals, the organization is able to rapidly move men and women from the street directly into housing with the appropriate support services.

Examples of Program Success 

Nelson, a Street Outreach team member for 17 years, spent years gradually building a relationship with a man who refused to come into shelter. Nelson and his team continued to build rapport with him, until one night, when the weather was dangerously severe, the man finally agreed to come inside.

After that, he asked to learn about housing opportunities. Within two months, he was housed.


“It’s all about the approach,” Nelson says. “We believe in treating everyone with dignity and respect. The motto of the Outreach team is: ‘Never, never, never give up!’”

CEO Experience

Lyndia Downie has been Pine Street Inn’s President & Executive Director since 2000. As a result of her leadership and vision, Pine Street is now the largest provider of permanent supportive housing for formerly homeless men and women in New England. During her tenure, Pine Street Inn has more than tripled its inventory of permanent supportive housing and now has more than 850 units of housing. Within the past several years, her efforts have led to a strategic decision to decrease a limited number of Pine Street’s shelter beds and convert resources to permanent supportive housing. This was the first time that shelter beds were closed in Boston due to decreased demand as a result of placing greater numbers of people in housing.

With her keen understanding of the complex causes of homelessness and proven methods to combat it, Lyndia is a frequently-requested speaker who regularly serves as a policy advisor at the city, state and federal levels. She serves on Mayor Martin Walsh’s Advisory Council on Homelessness and was a member of the task force that helped shape Boston's Way Home, the City of Boston’s new action plan to end veteran and chronic homelessness. She also serves on a number of policy advisory committees to the state’s Executive Office of Health and Human Services and was a member of Governor Baker’s Task Force on Persons Facing Chronically High Unemployment. She has presented on Pine Street Inn’s strategic housing expansion at the annual conference of the National Alliance to End Homelessness in Washington, D.C. and at the national Housing First Partners conference in Chicago. Additionally, she has been tapped to serve on a number of committees and boards, including the Massachusetts Council of Human Service Providers, the Massachusetts Housing & Shelter Alliance, and the Franklin Square House Foundation. She was named a Barr Fellow through the Barr Foundation’s program to honor nonprofit leaders in the region and has co-taught a course on solutions to homelessness at the Harvard Kennedy School.

In 2015, Lyndia was honored to receive the Massachusetts Council of Human Services’ CEO Award of Excellence for her leadership. In addition, Pine Street Inn has been honored with Bank of America’s Neighborhood Builders award, which recognizes innovation, excellence and leadership among nonprofits across the country. Lyndia was also the recipient of the 2011 Henry L. Shattuck City Champion Award from the Boston Municipal Research Bureau; and was named the “Most Innovative Person in the Massachusetts Non-Profit Sector” by The Boston Globe in 2011. A 2010 recipient of the Greater Boston Chamber of Commerce Pinnacle Award and the 2010 New England Women’s Leadership Award, she was also awarded an Honorary Doctor of Laws Degree from Mt. Ida College, an Honorary Doctor of Humanities Degree from New England Law Boston and an Honorary Doctor of Humane Letters Degree from William James College. Lyndia is a graduate of the University of Vermont.

Pine Street Inn is a leading partner in Boston’s Way Home, the City of Boston’s multi-partner plan to redesign the system addressing homelessness and end veteran and chronic homelessness.

Pine Street Inn is also a partner in two critically important collaborations improving outcomes for homeless and formerly homeless individuals with the highest utilization of healthcare services. First is a nine-partner Social Determinants of Health consortium funded by the state that has been the catalyst for a groundbreaking new level of data sharing, communication and coordination. The consortium aims to reduce unnecessary emergency room use by increasing medical care and human services coordination.

The second is a partnership between Pine Street Inn, St. Francis House and Boston Healthcare for the Homeless funded by RIZE Massachusetts. It is developing a coordinated approach to expand access to lifesaving harm reduction and treatment intervention for homeless and formerly homeless individuals, in the face of the opioid epidemic.

In our daily work, we also collaborate with more than 150 partners such as the Greater Boston Food Bank and the Boston Public Health Commission. These partnerships mean we can provide a greater range of services to our clients without duplicating services and capacity.

Financial summary data in the charts and graphs above is per the organization’s audited financials. Contributions from foundations and corporations are listed under individuals when the breakout was not available. The total revenue amounts reflect operating and non-operating sources of revenue including contributions for capital improvements and capital acquisitions. In the two most recent fiscal years, this includes contributions to a special fundraising initiative to mark Pine Street Inn’s 50th anniversary. The total revenue amount for each fiscal year also includes total investment returns during the fiscal year rather than only investment income allocated to the Inn’s operating budget.


The Impact tab is a section on the Giving Common added in October 2013; as such the majority of nonprofits have not yet had the chance to complete this voluntary section. The purpose of the Impact section is to ask five deceptively simple questions that require reflection and promote communication about what really matters – results. The goal is to encourage strategic thinking about how a nonprofit will achieve its goals. The following Impact questions are being completed by nonprofits slowly, thoughtfully and at the right time for their respective organizations to ensure the most accurate information possible.

1. What is your organization aiming to accomplish?


2. What are your strategies for making this happen?


3. What are your organization’s capabilities for doing this?


4. How will your organization know if you are making progress?


5. What have and haven’t you accomplished so far?
