Community Teamwork drives change with vital services and key collaborations, to create housing, education and economic opportunities that reduce poverty and strengthen communities.
From the single mom who can confidently head to work knowing her children are safe and well cared for, to the veteran we help return to his or her community, and the homeless family who gains training, employment, and the dignity of living in decent housing, we help people help themselves with child care, family supports, nutrition, fuel assistance, housing, skills training, employment, financial education, and individual asset and small business development.
As a Community Action Agency, a Regional Housing Agency, and a Community Development Corporation, Community Teamwork helps nearly 50,000 individuals from 63 cities and towns in northeastern Massachusetts gain greater economic independence.
"I’ve received so much valuable guidance from all the staff at the Small Business Center, they’ve helped me with everything from figuring out my target market to designing a logo. I couldn't have done it without them!” Christina H.
“I was very happy with the work that was done. Everything was explained to me in detail and the workers kept everything very clean. It doesn’t even look like they were here but I can tell the difference in my heating bills! Roger B.
Winter 2015 has brought record setting snow and cold. During the storms were you safe and warm? Did you have shelter?
Even though we helped nearly 50,000 people last year, each day there are still thousands of people in your community (children, families, seniors, veterans) who live with uncertainty about their housing, heating, and even their next meal.
Please make a gift of whatever you can to help us keep more people safe and warm and brought in from the cold.
