Northern Bank employee volunteers lend hand to displaced family

Press Release

Woburn, Massachusetts, June 5, 2023 – Northern Bank employees recently helped a displaced family move into permanent housing through nonprofit Heading Home’s “Up & Out” program.

Employee volunteers moved the family of three into its new home in Dorchester, Massachusetts and outfitted it with a variety of household essentials donated by their bank colleagues.

The benefiting family – a single mom with two kids ages 13 and 11– was ecstatic when the home was revealed to them on Thursday, June 1, 2023.

Fourteen Northern Bank employees supported the effort, including: Joanne Fishlin, Brian Knibbs, Sean Mahoney, Teresa Evangelista, Shabeli Polanco, Brandon Belanger, Drew Finn, Charles Robinson, Ryan Millerick, Kate Budukiewicz, Meg DiMascio, Jon Josselyn, Rosanna Rodriguez and Yomaira Rosario.

For over 60 years, community giving has been part of Northern Bank. Today, working through the bank’s charitable foundation, it focuses specifically on providing food, shelter and housing to local families.

A non-profit organization, Heading Home's mission is to end homelessness in Greater Boston by providing a supported pathway to self-sufficiency that begins with a home, together with critical services such as life skills, financial literacy, and job training.
