We're proudly announcing the newest chapter of our story!

StoryHeights Foundation is partnering with Compassion New England to open Blessing Barn Mattapan and Crisis Center at 1595 Blue Hill Avenue, Mattapan, MA 02126.

Through this sharing center, we are working to bring revitalization into Mattapan’s Retail Economy, provide citizens a luxurious place to shop with dignity, as well as offer a voucher system for basic goods. Our Crisis Center is operated 24/7 to meet the needs of the local community through the funds of this store.

There’s no better time to bring hope, love, and justice to our city!

The store will be opening Saturday, April 3rd, Easter Weekend!

What is Blessing Barn?

The Blessing Barn Home Store is a thrift store and sharing center located in Mendon, MA (with a location in Beacon Hill as well). All items sold are donated by people in the community. The profits of the sales at the store go directly into the community by sponsoring our crisis care programs operated by Compassion New England.

StoryHeights Foundation is partnering with Compassion New England to open their newest Blessing Barn store in Mattapan and will power the crisis center.
