Description: Established in 1990, the agency’s mission is to help homeless and at risk families learn the skills necessary to break the cycle of homelessness and poverty. With sites in Roxbury and Dorchester, we provide a safe, community setting with customized services to give homeless moms and kids the help and skills they need to succeed.

1) YOUTH DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMS are licensed by the Commonwealth and designed to help school-age children (5.9 to 19 years old) recover from the trauma of homelessness and do well in school. Research indicates that children in a supportive, stable community can heal from the traumas of homelessness, stay in school and thrive. Brookview provides daily after school and full day summer programs with customized academic, emotional and behavioral support.

Brookview provides a safe, supportive place to stay with on-site children’s programs and lots of support. Moms who know their children are safe can focus on building the skills they need to support their families.

3)TRAINING & EDUCATION. Our dedicated staff helps people address and overcome their particular barriers to success by offering a full range of skill building and health workshops. Each participant has a customized education, life skills and job skills training plan.

4) PREVENTION & STABILIZATION. Brookview House also opens its programs to local area residents and schools to help those at risk of homelessness stay at work and housed. As a result, we’re stabilizing the community as we’re helping families thrive.
