Liberty Mutual Foundation seeks to provide security by supporting organizations that deliver immediate, life-saving aid and basic services to men, women and children who are homeless.
Our grants address the capacity of homeless-serving organizations to meet the most basic needs of individuals and families. The Foundation gives priority to programs that deliver emergency shelter, food and medical services to families and individuals.
Every other year, Liberty Mutual Foundation releases a Request for Proposal through our Basic Services Initiative. The aim of the initiative is to boost the capacity of existing basic services networks and safety nets. The initiative follows a two-year funding cycle. The current submission cycle (2016-17) has concluded, with the next available cycle scheduled for spring 2018. 

Tackling Youth Homelessness

At Liberty Mutual, we are deeply invested in the future of youth. Since 2014, Liberty Mutual has been making grants that mitigate the effects of youth homelessness. Through 2014-2016, Liberty's corporate philanthropy had made 92 grants in this area totaling $3.4 million around the country. By working with key organizations in Boston, Seattle and Dallas such as Fare Start, Teen Feed, Sociedad Latina, YouthBuild Boston, Bridge Over Troubled Waters, More Than Words, Home for Little Wanderers and City Square, we have provided education, emergency shelter, food, longer-term housing, job training and health care to marginalized young people who just need a fair shot and a stable home.
Our latest Youth Homelessness Prevention grants ($550,000) were just made in December of 2016; they were awarded to 18 partner organizations that applied through the Request for Proposals to deliver programs and services in Boston.
