Discover Boston

Boston, (#boston) If you’ve ever lived in or visited Boston, it may be one of your favorite places in the world. Ask a dozen people what they love about the city and its environs and you will likely get a dozen different answers. Boston is, if nothing else, quirky…where else can one find grown men quacking on duck boats? History abounds here, with no better teacher than a day or two spent ambling along The Freedom Trail. Speaking of teachers, the region boasts more than 50 colleges and universities, including Harvard and MIT. No visit is complete without a trip to Fenway Park even if the Red Sox are not in town, or the “Gahden,” home of the Bruins and Celtics. Boston has it all art, food, and nightlife of a big city, with the heart of a small town.

The Chelsea Collaborative

a 2020-21 TPC grantee, works to empower Chelsea residents to enhance the social and economic health of the community. They focus on mitigating risk factors including poverty, history of trauma, undocumented status, lack of English proficiency, low literacy, and basic skills deficiency. 

Boston Higher Education Resource Center   

a 2019-21 TPC grantee, is a Latinx-led program that aims to close the opportunity gap for first-generation youth of color by encouraging them to pursue post-secondary education and providing them with the skills and motivation to become agents of change in their communities.

  

Fathers' Uplift Inc.

a current TPC grantee based in Dorchester-assisting fathers in overcoming barriers (financial, oppressive, emotional, traumatic, and addiction-based) that prevent them from remaining engaged in their children's lives. They also provide mentoring, cultural outings, and counseling to children who are growing up without their fathers.
