Right now in Massachusetts 50,000 children have an open case with DCF.

Each one of these children deserves to be prepared to go back to school this year! Education can be a powerful counterweight to the abuse, neglect and separation kids and teens engaged with the Massachusetts Department of Children and Families experience.

With your support, we can ensure that every school-age child in Massachusetts involved with the DCF is set up for success this school year!

We invite you to join us in providing hope for children who has been impacted by trauma, abuse and neglect.
