Strong Families, Strong Communities

Together we can build strong families, create better lives, and strengthen our communities.

MetroWest is known for its beauty, strong economy, and affluence. But like many suburban communities, the region has a growing number of families struggling to make ends meet. Here in MetroWest, a range of challenges and barriers prevent families from living healthy, successful lives. This may include poverty and homelessness, hunger, mental illness, domestic violence, underemployment, lack of affordable housing, reliable transportation or age or linguistically appropriate services.

At the Foundation, we believe that building strong families and supporting our most vulnerable residents are crucial to the long-term success of our region.
