Sometimes, all it takes to change a life is enough change for the bus.
How do you hold it together when you’re in foster care and you really miss your family, but they can’t afford the cost of transportation to visit you?
How can you do well in school when you need a laptop, but your parents can’t afford one?
How can you keep your furniture and childrens’ belongings safe when you have to move into a homeless shelter for a few months and can only bring 2 suitcases with you?
Many underserved children and families involved with the juvenile court and child welfare systems, have the motivation but not the means to improve difficult lives. Sometimes, finding the specific resources one needs to take the next positive step forward can seem impossible.
That’s where One Can Help steps in.
We work with juvenile court-appointed attorneys and social workers to provide the missing resources their underserved clients in crisis need right now in order to help break the cycles of poverty and stagnation, and move forward.
Since 2006, we’ve helped more than 7,000 parents and children.
By providing urgently needed resources, we advance racial justice and greater equity for all.
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.
