A Safe Place.

Boston’s young people need a place to call their own; a safe place where kids and teens can express themselves openly and freely, be with their friends and connect with role models and mentors who truly care about their well-being.  

The BIG IDEA is a huge lift, yet is absolutely attainable. Public investments and private philanthropy are coming together to build the foundation for the next 50 years of fun, safe, and enriching opportunities for Boston’s kids. Will you join us?
