Ending Homelessness Is Within Our Reach

The Winter Walk is a campaign raising awareness and funds to help end homelessness in Boston. It centers on an annual walk, 2 miles around the streets of the city in February, the coldest month of the year. Our fourth annual event will be held on February 9, 2020 on Copley Square Plaza.

This is our chance to link arms with those who experience homelessness and  to listen humbly to their stories. It is our chance to show them that this city cares about their lives and to affirm our commitment to do all it takes to ease their struggles.

The Winter Walk is proudly presented with Boston Medical Center and Boston Medical Center HealthNet Plan.

Not On Our Watch

Boston is a city that prides itself on its resilience and community spirit. 

The Winter Walk brings together a number of Greater Boston's incredible homeless service programs to show the powerful work being done in our city. In February 2019, over 1200 people registered to raise awareness and walk shoulder to shoulder, homeless and housed. We’ll keep walking together until we end homelessness. Learn how to take action year round by contacting us or signing up for our mailing list.
