BreakTime

Breaktime is a Massachusetts-based nonprofit working to break the cycle of young adult homelessness. We believe it is time to break down barriers, break into systems, and break apart stigmas that hold back young adults experiencing housing insecurity. Through transitional employment and financial empowerment, Breaktime works to break down barriers to job security, financial security, and–ultimately–housing security for our Associates. This process of early intervention enables Breaktime to combat long-term chronic homelessness and support young adults in becoming stably employed and housed. Moreover, through awareness-building and policy advocacy on the local, state, and national level, Breaktime catalyzes systemic change–breaking into systems and breaking apart stigmas that unjustly harm high-potential young people.

CIty of Boston, Office of the Mayor

Hyde Square Task Force

HSTF was founded on the belief that communities are stronger when we take care of our youth. By harnessing their potential, we not only help youth navigate adolescence, but support them in becoming the changemakers of today and our future. HSTF was formed in the 1980s by a coalition of neighbors and leaders coming together to address the growing violence and related challenges facing the Hyde/Jackson neighborhood of Jamaica Plain. Now known as Boston’s Latin Quarter, our neighborhood has transformed. Despite the progress, like in other urban neighborhoods, our youth continue to struggle with high levels of poverty, community violence and low-educational attainment.

(3.) offering mini-grants for events and activities in the park;
(4.) monthly meetings via zoom (first Tuesday of each month) with park volunteers, park staff, and public safety officers from the whole park.
This year, we will be working with the state parks agency on their Master Plan for the park. We are inviting neighborhood residents to join the Southwest Corridor Park Alliance to volunteer as neighborhood representatives in order to help with the Master Planning process.
