Action Projects

Through our Action Project initiative, the Foundation identifies the root cause of community issues through analyzing data and working collaboratively with nonprofit partners, educators, and civic leaders. Our strategic investments in education, workforce development, and housing target specific and tangible outcomes to improve the lives of MetroWest residents.

Equity in Education

This project launched in 2021 and made possible thanks to the support of MathWorks. The primary goal of this project is to increase literacy rates for MetroWest students in grades 1-4 and address math performance outcomes for middle school students. 

Workforce Development

This project focuses on income inequality that persists in the MetroWest, and provides a path to financial stability for under resourced youth and underemployed or unemployed adults. 

Housing and Homelessness Prevention

This project focuses on prevention-based models to address housing and homelessness inequities that persist in MetroWest. The goal is to provide paths to safe, stable, and permanent housing for under-resourced residents.

Impact MetroWest

Community Indicator Project

Impact MetroWest, a comprehensive community needs assessment is an interactive resource that enables us and the community to focus our efforts based on data. Impact MetroWest increases awareness around the strengths and challenges facing the cities and towns that comprise our MetroWest community. Two of the significant needs identified from Impact MetroWest are being addressed through our Action Projects.
