Our mission is to bring peace of mind to children and families across Massachusetts.
When a family has peace of mind, children are healthier and communities are stronger.
At Children’s Services of Roxbury, nothing is more important than delivering our trusted and culturally-relevant innovative programs and services to underserved children and families across Massachusetts. Our programs, developed for and by people of color, are focused on five critical areas. Through these areas, and the programs they deliver, we are demonstrating our belief that a child’s peace of mind is paramount to strengthening families across Massachusetts.
