Somerville Homeless Coalition’s “Under the Roof”

Sat., Apr. 21 – Support affordable housing and community involvement and enjoy a lively event in Somerville! The Somerville Homeless Coalition’s (SHC) “Under the Roof” annual benefit dinner will be held once again at Arts at the Armory, recognizing over 27 years of support of the non-profit organization.

Joseph Flatley, President and CEO of the Massachusetts Housing Investment Corporation (MHIC), has been chosen as this year’s honoree. Somerville Homeless Coalition and MHIC have enjoyed a long standing partnership regarding affordable housing.

Festivities will begin at 6:30 p.m., with an open bar and a chance to browse auction items, followed shortly by dinner by popular Somerville barbecue restaurant Redbones, dancing, and an awards ceremony for Flatley and other SHC partners. All monies raised will help underwrite SHC’s high-demand programs, including homeless prevention, permanent housing, emergency shelters for families and individuals, and food assistance under Project SOUP; New England’s first free supper program.

Dress code for the event is business casual. Tickets are $75 each or $550 for a table of eight.
