The City Mission Inc. provides one-time funding to resolve immediate crises, depending on the availability of funds, for those in the greater Boston area.

The program also provides information, referrals, and advocacy to assist clients in identifying additional resources.

Special attention is given to low-income families in order to help maintain stable housing to prevent homelessness. The Emergency Needs Network also directs clients to vocational counseling, job search programs, child-care and other resources that enhance their lives, through a two year commitment program called Lift Up.
