Strength to Serve and Reebok One Service Day – June 2015@ReebokOne and @StrengthToServe visited Brookview and used their muscles to help us with landscaping and cleanup for our new development. None of the volunteers knew what they were here for but once they found out, their excitement permeated all of Dorchester! We couldn't thank them enough for their enthusiasm and support.

Brookview CEO Wins MA Conference for Women 'Be The Change' Award
Boston, MA. – The Massachusetts Conference for Women selected Deborah Hughes, the Chief Executive Officer of Brookview House, to receive the 2014 “Be The Change” Award in front of 10,000 attendees. Each year, one woman from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts who personifies compassion for her community is selected to receive this award. The woman must also have a sincere commitment to improving the everyday lives of those around her and Ms. Hughes’ commitment is reflected in her 25 years of service to the women and children of Brookview House. Established in 1990, Brookview House provides homeless women and their children with a safe place to live and programs to build their self-esteem. Ms. Hughes and her staff spend tireless hours counseling, coaching and preparing single mothers for a stable lifestyle that breaks the cycle of homelessness.
Excited that her daily efforts align with the mission of the Conference, Ms. Hughes noted that she was humbly grateful for the recognition. “I am extremely thankful to The Massachusetts Women’s Conference. It is quite an honor to receive this award, especially now as the Conference celebrates 10 years of uplifting women’s lives.
But, truth be told, we all represent the change we want to see. We have a successful model at Brookview House and it needs to be replicated so that more women and children receive the services they need. We can all do our part to create positive change.”
