Community Collaborative at Boston Public Schools

We have an on-site presence at 12 local schools to make Rosie’s Place services more accessible to families in the community and to better connect them with our services and those of other community agencies.

Rosie’s Place is connecting with underserved women in the community through partnerships with ten elementary and middle schools in nearby Roxbury and Dorchester. Our Community Collaborative provides on-site  and by referral services to women whose children attend the Blackstone Innovation, Frederick Pilot Middle School, Shaw Elementary, Holmes Elementary, Kenny Elementary, Lee Academy, Dever Elementary, Hernandez Elementary, Sarah Greenwood K-8, Bridge Boston Charter, Winthrop Elementary and Community Academy of Science and Health High Schools. Last year, staff met with over 1200 women for a wide-range of needs, from back rent assistance and utility arrearage to transportation and furniture referrals. 

At Boston Public Schools we offer: 

  • one-on-one advocacy 
  • housing assistance
  • resources and information
  • workshops and groups
