One Vulnerable Child

It’s so hard to grow up in the system.

One Urgent Need

Sometimes a crib, emergency rent,
or dance classes, can be life changing.

One Step Forward

By providing missing resources,
we make better outcomes possible.

Did you know…

Most of the children and families involved in the juvenile justice and child welfare systems live in poverty and are often, because of long-standing inequities, of color.

Many are not able to take positive steps forward because a certain critical item or service is needed, and our governmental agencies rarely have sufficient resources to help.

That’s where we come in.
One Can Help (OCH) provides these missing resources.

Since 2006, OCH has been quickly, responsibly and impactfully changing lives across Massachusetts.

One child at a time.
One need at a time.
Thanks to you.
