THE YEAR WE CHANGED OUR NAME

We spent more than 50 years breaking barriers and building opportunities for low-income residents of North Central Massachusetts. As we looked toward the next 50, we saw our own opportunity to recognize that work.  By changing our name, we are reflecting the very best of what we do, each and every day -- connecting our clients to opportunities and ensuring they are equipped to make them count. Our new name aligns with our ongoing mission to empower families to achieve economic security by eliminating barriers and creating opportunities.
