Birthday Wishes is committed to making a difference in homeless children’s lives. Birthday parties provide the opportunity for reflection, celebration, and hope. While most children look forward to their birthday parties each year, homeless children and teenagers may not get the chance to celebrate. Birthday Wishes provides birthday parties and birthday boxes filled with decorations and presents for homeless children in the greater Boston area. With help from friends and clients, Lightship was able to sponsor the items needed for the birthday boxes and build the boxes for 200 children and teenagers.

Boston Health Care for the Homeless
Homelessness remains a bewilderingly complex public health challenge that has long thwarted simple solutions. Boston Health Care for the Homeless provides integrated medical, behavioral, and oral health care, as well as preventative services, to more than 11,000 homeless people in greater Boston. They have established a public health framework that is paying dividends globally, toward the elimination of health disparities suffered by this vulnerable population. Our annual gift helps support the cost of over the counter medications and supplies for more than 150 homeless men and women.
