In addition to serving on the Board of Directors of the Concord-Carlisle Community Chest, Gigi Cowan-Bondick supports various nonprofit efforts, such as the homelessness prevention organization Heading Home. Gigi Bondick has assisted Heading Home specifically with its Up and Out moves. Up and Out moves are volunteer efforts to assist families with relocating from shelters to permanent homes. Volunteers lend both their time and financial donations, which go toward cleaning, furnishing, and preparing an apartment for a particular family. Once an apartment is prepared, volunteers welcome the family into its new home. Up and Out Moves typically occur on Saturdays and take approximately half a day. Every day in the Greater Boston area, more than 7,000 people are homeless, and nearly half of those individuals are children, according to Heading Home’s executive director, Tom Lorello. Heading Home works to end homelessness by offering a number of resources for those working to achieve permanent housing.
