For more than 30 years we have serve more than 300 families a year with an array of educational, cultural, and basic needs supports. We depend on your support for our continued programming.
Here is a sampling of what we offer:
NEW: Intensive Reading for Young Children in which children read 6 or more books over the summer and increased their reading levels by 1.5 grade levels.
NEW: Hasbro Summer Learning Program supported an innovative music and performance program in which youth learned percussion and wrote poetry, leading to a performance at the Community Music School of Springfield.
The YECO Black College Tours encourage youth with college readiness workshops, parental support, a 7-day tour of historically black colleges, and tours to local colleges and Universities.
Our Family Life Center supports the mental health needs of a community with limited access to valuable supports.
The HUD supported homeless resettlement program supports the emergency and long term housing needs of community residents.
As a partner in the city-wide Drug Free Communities Act prevention efforts, we help develop cross-sector partnerships to improve policy and environmental conditions that keep our kids and communities healthy.
After School programs that support working parents and those who are furthering their educational goals. This program works with funders and other institutions to provide an array of recreational, cultural, and educational opportunities to youth.
A Young Fathers Program, funded by the MA Dept. of Child & Family Services, helps men of all ages stand tall and face fatherhood with responsibility, information, and access to resources. This approach is shown to combat the cycle of poverty associated with teen pregnancy and absent fathers through education and new opportunity.
Family Skills Building partners parents with a counselor who offers them critical support with daily living and parenting.
