What would drive you forward when others fade to dust?

What would give you strength and joy while others sit and rust?

Perseverance gets you through and helps you do things that few would dare to do.

Investing in Our Beloved Community

 

Learn More About The Campaign…

Founded in 1990, Brookview is a Black- and Latinx women-led organization that works for justice, equity and systemic change for low-income mothers and children in Boston, many with histories of domestic violence. Our mission is to help these families develop the skills necessary to break the cycle of homelessness and poverty. Through a two-generation, culturally-responsive approach, Brookview provides housing and a broad range of supportive programs to improve educational achievement, health and wellbeing, and economic independence.

Brookview never closed its doors during the pandemic. Instead, we called on friends like you, who helped us expand services to meet the increased demand. You helped us respond with safe housing, food, basic needs, rent and utility assistance, academic support, mental health services, and COVID-19 vaccine clinics.

As we struggle through another wave of this pandemic, we need your support more than ever. To help protect and grow this beloved community where mothers and children are cared for, encouraged to dream the impossible, and given the tools to reach those dreams.

Our goal is to raise $200,000 by year-endPlease give today! 

Thank You for your gift and for sharing this page with family and friends.

Coding program aims to empower girls at homeless shelter

Brookview House in Boston offers free coding classes to girls who have experienced homelessness, in the hopes of garnering their interests in computer science and programming.

SUCCESS STORY

“Brookview helped me learn to communicate in English, recognized and nurtured my love of art. At first, I didn’t know how to speak English, and it was a big obstacle at school and in the community, so I needed to attend bilingual classes for two years. Now I go to regular classes; I have learned how to communicate in English very well. I joined the Teen Visionaries where I learned about domestic violence and tried photography for the first time. I also attended sculpture classes on Saturday mornings.” –Tania
