The Womens' Lunch Place provides a safe, comfortable day time shelter, nutritious food, and services for women who are homeless or poor.
Since 1982, thousands of Boston's poorest women have found refuge and welcome at the Women's Lunch Place. Many of these women sleep outside or in temporary overnight shelters. They are often required to take their belongings with them, and to search for their own food and shelter during daytime hours. The Women's Lunch Place is one of the few places where they and other women can find comfort and sustenance during the day. We treat our guests with dignity and respect, and foster a community committed to meeting each woman's individual needs. Our work is made possible by the kindness of private donations and dedicated volunteers.
