Review for Beverly Bootstraps , Beverly, MA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

As a Board Member of Beverly Bootstraps, I have watched the staff and volunteers change the lives of thousands of people over the many years of my involvement. Bootstraps is a facile organization, able to adjust to the needs of any client who arrives. When a woman arrived after hours carrying her baby, fleeing a violent situation, our outreach worker filled bags with baby supplies, food and clothing. She then followed the woman to her destination to drop the bags off, as there was no baby seat in her car. The students in the GED program were missing class because of babysitting needs, so a babysitter was budgeted for that time slot. Bootstraps began as a food pantry in a church basement. As the clients needs evolved, so has the organization. Bootstraps seeks to Embrace, Educate and Empower those in need in our community.
