Sometimes, all it takes to change a life is enough change for the bus.
One Can Help provides the missing resources at-risk youth, foster children and underserved families urgently need to remedy court concerns and improve difficult lives.
OCH was created by court appointed attorneys and social workers who believed that a major opportunity to meaningfully improve and enhance vulnerable lives is lost when there is juvenile court or child welfare agency involvement but no way to remedy concerns.
That’s where One Can Help steps in.
We are uniquely able to responsibly provide exactly what is needed at the moment when it is most likely to help through a system of collaboration with court-appointed attorneys, social workers and child advocates across Massachusetts.
Providing critically needed resources reduces the need for foster care, prevents homelessness and provides opportunities for success. It also advances racial justice and supports more equitable outcomes for all.
From bus fare to get to counselling to emergency rent to stabilize a family.
Since 2006, we’ve helped more than 8,000 parents and children.
Poverty should not prevent progress.
One Can Help is a 501c3 non-profit operating throughout Massachusetts. 95% of contributions go towards directly providing the missing resources that underserved children and families in crisis need to succeed — right now.
