Community Collaborative at Boston Public Schools

We have an on-site presence at four local schools to make Rosie’s Place services more accessible to families in the community and to better connect them with our services and those of other community agencies.

Rosie’s Place is connecting with underserved women in the community through partnerships with four elementary and middle schools in nearby Roxbury and Dorchester. Our Community Collaborative provides on-site services to women whose children attend the Blackstone Innovation, Holmes, Kenny and Shaw schools. Last year, staff met with over 600 women for a wide-range of needs, from back rent assistance and utility arrearage to transportation and furniture referrals. 

At Boston Public Schools we offer: 

  • one-on-one advocacy 
  • housing assistance
  • legal assistance
  • resources and information
  • food pantry
  • workshops and groups 
  • activities for families and children
