We are an ordinary group of people on an extraordinary mission to bring the magic and meaning of childhood into the lives of children who have been impacted by trauma, abuse and neglect.
The Wonderfund is a private, nonprofit, 501(c)3 that serves children engaged with the Massachusetts Department of Children and Families. We provide comfort and dignity to children in traumatic situations and enrich childhoods that have been impacted by abuse and neglect.
Research shows that childhood trauma makes it more likely for people to suffer from addiction, mental health issues, chronic illness, and early death. By supporting traumatized children, the Wonderfund can help them build resiliency, confidence, and agency over their own lives. We can help them overcome significant obstacles and increase their chance of becoming healthy, productive adults.
The Wonderfund strives to empower every child involved with DCF to experience hope, confidence, and joy.
