ONEin3 Spotlight: Kevin Lilly

Feb 20, 2015

23-year-old Kevin Lilly was born, raised, and now lives in Dorchester, but his driven spirit touches young adults all across Boston. As the Founder of Samaritans Steps, Kevin’s mission is to help end youth homelessness, while inspiring and empowering his peers to take action and stand for causes they believe in.

To that end, Kevin is working to create a local shelter and transitional housing for homeless youth. His team is currently selling tickets to the Celtics game on April 1, with money raised going toward purchasing the first property to be converted.
The Samaritans Steps team is also coordinating with Americorp students to prepare and distribute sandwiches to the homeless Downtown and in Harvard Square.   

If you’re interested in learning more, or want to join the cause, visit Samaritans Steps Facebook page, or visit their website:
