The COVID-19 crisis has meant big changes for The Boston Home’s many vibrant programs. B. Fit! is The Boston Home’s day wellness program for adults with multiple sclerosis and other advanced neurological disorders who live at home in the community. Under normal circumstances, B.Fit! members come to The Boston Home up to four days a week where they participate in educational programs and have complete access to our rehabilitation services, Wheelchair Enhancement Center and Computer Café, as well as having lunch and snacks served each day, and participating in off-site field trips to museums and performances. Throughout the COVID-19 crisis, B. Fit! is still offering a wide range of services for members that aim to meet practical needs and support social and emotional wellness.

The Boston Home Announces the first-annual Virtual Hero 2.5 Mile Walk/Run. The Boston Home’s Virtual Hero Walk/Run is a community fundraising event to recognize all frontline heroes.
The virtual walk or run can be completed from any location you choose, even on your treadmill! You get to choose your date, your own course, and what time you start. You can walk or run at your own pace and time it yourself. Families, friends, and pets are all welcome. Hero costumes and signs honoring your frontline hero are encouraged!
The Boston Home launched its first capital campaign on World MS Day: May 30, 2020. The “Compassionate Care Capital Campaign” is a three-year, $2.5 million campaign that the organization aims to complete by the end of 2023.
The launch of the public phase of the campaign comes as The Boston Home is more than half-way towards its final goal. To date more than $1.3 million has been raised from individual and institutional donors. "The board of trustees and the capital campaign committee has done an enormous amount of work to launch a successful campaign, both in terms of planning and fundraising," said The Boston Home Chief Executive Officer, Christine Reilly. "To have reached the halfway point...before launching the public phase, is a testament to the extraordinary generosity of our trustees, major donors, and the community's belief in the importance of compassionate care.”
