Hunger and Homelessness

TELEM is about people helping people.

In the Hunger and Homelessness track, TELEM students have the opportunity to learn about the issue of poverty. Students in this track will participate in classroom-based learning and direct service activities with people who are struggling with  issues related to poverty and homelessness. Students are also given the opportunity to reflect upon and share their experiences with their peers and supervisors to round out a meaningful personal and learning experience. Students will learn the many issues and dimensions related to poverty, hunger and homelessness to develop insight and strategies to help fight poverty.  

Our service sites include homeless or transitional family shelters, soup kitchens and other poverty-related programs.

Our current Hunger and Homelessness partnerships include: 

  • Temple Beth Emunah, Brockton at the Evelyn House  
  • Temple Beth Shalom, Needham at the First Parish Church, Cambridge
  • Temple Beth Torah, Holliston at the Medway Family
  • Temple Chayai Shalom, Easton at Your Lucky Day Thrift, Stoughton
