Resource Center & Library

The State Street Resource Center has computers, phones, paper, and other basic office supplies available for guests searching for employment and/or housing.

Many guests use 67 Newbury Street as their home address to receive mail; this is especially important when applying for jobs and housing. They can also access email online to stay in touch with family and friends, and use resource guides created specifically for Women’s Lunch Place. Classes are offered on a variety of topics including literacy, computer skills, housing and legal issues, employment, financial literacy, nutrition, and stress reduction.

The Susannah Waldo Wood Reading Room

The Susannah Waldo Wood Reading Room, located adjacent to the State Street Resource Center, is a quiet space for guests to sit and read, or browse for books to take with them.
