Get Involved

In our effort to end homelessness through education, we rely on support from the community and people like you.  
Each of us has the ability to create a positive impact.

School on Wheels of Massachusetts (SOWMA) trains community volunteers to provide tutoring once a week for students in grades K-12 whose lives have been impacted by homelessness. Our volunteer tutors come from all walks of life with different backgrounds and professions, yet they share one goal: to help children move beyond homelessness through a quality education.

Tutors meet with students each week to provide stability and reinforce grade level learning skills, work on school projects and help boost the child’s self-esteem. Tutors serve as mentors and positive adult role models for students to help them realize their full potential in the classroom and beyond.

Discover the many rewarding ways you can make a difference for children in your community. 

There are many ways you can get involved as a family, as a group, or as an individual to support our kids!

We partner with companies to provide rich opportunities for their employees to get involved and help support children impacted by homelessness.  

We partner with civic groups to provide rich opportunities for their members to get involved and help support children impacted by homelessness.

We partner with schools to provide rich opportunities for their students to get involved and help children impacted by homelessness in their own backyard.

Our Amazon Wish List allows us to handpick the items that our students need, and enables you to shop for our kids without leaving home! There is a wide variety of school supplies to choose from, all with varying prices, and Amazon ships whatever you buy straight to our door. At checkout, please be sure to include your name and address on the packing slip so we know who to thank for the wonderful donation!

Each year we provide over 1,000 fully stocked new backpacks for children living in shelters, motels and transitional apartments.
