Waltham Community Leadership Group (WCLG)

Founded in 2019, the WCLG is a grassroots organization of people experiencing homelessness in Waltham that meets weekly and brings together the strengths and wisdom of our community. Facilitated by Chaplains on the Way, the group works to address collective issues, raise public awareness and challenge stereotypes about homelessness, build community between unhoused and housed people, and provide care, mentorship, and leadership to our communities. 

Attend a WCLG weekly meeting: Tuesdays 9:30am - 10:30am at Common Good CO., 419 Moody Street, Waltham, MA 02452
