Review for Brookview House Inc, Dorchester, MA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Sometimes people think about Board service as what you give to a charity, but being a part of Brookview House has been more about what it gives me: knowing that I am part of an organization that is moving families from poverty and homelessness to being thriving members of our community. I am both amazed and humbled by the hard work I see moms and their kids doing everyday to turn their lives around and by the caring, supportive and knowledgeable staff who guide them through a proven process.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Expand their services to other neighborhoods in Massachusetts and across the country. The Brookview House model works and should be replicated to both improve the lives of the families who participate and reduce the need for government assistance for the long-term.
