Our Mission

Compassion New England exists to spread hope and love to people in need! We do this by meeting local needs with effective, sustainable programs. All of the programs of CNE were created in response to a tangible need that we saw in our community. Our team is always thinking “How can we help?”.

Crisis Center

Our Crisis Centers at the Mendon Home Store and Mattapan store serve individuals in need of food & basic necessities. Over the years we have had the privilege to serve people in wide range of circumstances. From house fires to unexpected pregnancy, job loss & homelessness to escaping domestic violence – whatever the situation, people in need will find a trained Care Representative ready to help!

The Happy Place

The Happy Place strives to establish acceptance, encouragement and support in order to meet the needs of individuals with intellectual disabilities and families with children with special needs. We operate a Kids and Adult Clubhouse that provides a safe space to hang out and be themselves, as well as a Vocational Program dedicated to providing vocational training opportunities.

Room in the City

Room in the City was launched in November of 2020 in order to provide free, short term housing for the loved ones of patients admitted into Boston hospitals. We have a two bedroom, two bathroom apartment in the Beacon Hill neighborhood (walking distance to Mass General Hospital). We hope our guests will find RITC to be a comfortable place to rest and recharge during a challenging time.
