Service Area


Our focus and our impact are 100% local.

We work every day to improve lives in our service area of Eastern Massachusetts. And we do it by mobilizing people, businesses, nonprofits, and government agencies, neighborhood by neighborhood, town by town, city by city. It creates a ripple effect that can be felt across our region.

Whether it’s a child in Boston learning to read, a family in Lowell saving enough to purchase their first home, or a teenager in Lynn working with an Americorps member, the lives of those we touch are interlocked and interwoven.
