A podcast created by Winter Walk Boston, an initiative raising awareness towards an end to homelessness in Greater Boston. This year we couldn't join our voices together in a live event. So that's why we started Don’t Walk By, to share stories from our unhoused community with you, to walk with, or share together. Through the voices of our homeless brothers and sisters, and the shelter and service providers working to make change, we hope to change perceptions and break stigmas. We speak with homeless or formerly homeless individuals, families, youth, veterans, and more. Find something important, and something hopeful, in every episode.

    Don't Walk By

    The Winter Walk is an event and initiative raising awareness towards an end to homelessness in Greater Boston. We could not come together for our large, outdoor event this year, so we created Don't Walk By to share stories from our unhoused community and from providers dedicated to support and care for our most vulnerable neighbors in need.  Everyone has a story...we can all take a few moments to listen.
