Connecting to Social Services

We are committed to working with those in need.

The Downtown Boston BID provides services to all those who experience Downtown.
The BID employs a full-time outreach specialist to connect homeless people with housing or social services.


BID Staff and Outreach Team members participate in the weekly City of Boston Homeless Task Force meeting which brings together city and state agencies, homeless service providers, public health and first responders to develop and implement collaborative services to individuals experiencing homelessness.
