Years of Victory Society

Amongst our generous supporters are over 600 donors who deserve special recognition. They have demonstrated unwavering commitment to our mission for decades – some having made their inaugural gift as far back as 1993 and who are still giving to Victory Programs today.

Our new Years of Victory Society is our way of recognizing those individuals who have been giving to us steadily for 10+ years. Thanks to their ongoing generosity, we can continue to help vulnerable individuals and families in crisis find shelter, sustenance, recovery, care, and professional, compassionate support.

To all those who are part of the Years of Victory Society, thank you for your continued partnership! We are proud to honor the longevity of your support.

Dr. Inge Corless, Years of Victory Society member, Inaugural Year 1998

I have been doing HIV research since 1985. When I moved to Boston in 1993, I met with Administrators at the Boston Living Center and enlisted members of the BLC as participants in my studies. Thank you so much.

Janine Shahbaz, Years of Victory Society member, Inaugural Year 1998

I support the Boston Living Center because I volunteered at Encounters Dinner for several years with a group of friends from the Jesuit Urban Center Church on Harrison Avenue. I meet so many special guests, other volunteers, and employees of the Boston Living Center – Lee, Michael, Anthony, Kevin, and others. Memories forever in my heart.

John and Mary Brooks, Years of Victory Society member, Inaugural Year 1995

We support the Boston Living Center in memory of our son, David, who passed away in 1992, to AIDS.
