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.
The Community Foundation for MetroWest’s Human Services Grant Program (formerly known as Family Support) awards one-time general operating grants on an annual basis that align with our belief that equitable access to opportunities and resources is central to a strong and healthy region. We envision a diverse and inclusive community where there are no barriers to accessing life changing or enhancing resources and services that improve the quality of life for individuals and households in MetroWest.
