Partnering With Social Service Organizations
EBCDC has also cooperated with local health care providers to support programs such as Adult Health Programs, Meals on Wheels, and Visiting Nurses. The corporation has long-standing affiliations with several health care organizations experienced in service delivery to the elderly, including East Boston Neighborhood Health Center, Boston Senior Home Care, Chelsea-Revere-Winthrop Home Care Center, Inc., The North End Community Health Center, North Suffolk Mental Health Association, and the Faulkner Hospital, to name a few. Ongoing, the corporation continues to seek programs, including social and educational programs, to enhance the lives of the individuals during their golden years.
We are pleased to add Atlantic Works Artist and ZUMIX Firehouse to our list of support groups that helps us provide many daily activities for our elderly residents.
The goal of EBCDC is to assist the East Boston community in the development of interest in music, fine arts, theater and their ethnic heritages. Each of EBCDC’s projects includes a focus on developing a solid educational / cultural program designed to meet the needs of each group in the population. Cultural awareness is essential to the long-term growth and expansion of the East Boston community and its people.
Below are some of our Partners:
The East Boston Neighborhood Health Center (EBNHC) has been a vital part of the community for more than 40 years. From the beginning, our services and development have been defined by the needs of East Boston and the communities we serve.
Our mission is to provide easily accessible, affordable, appropriate, high-quality, personalized, coordinated primary care, for all who live and work in East Boston and the surrounding communities, without regard to age, income, insurance status, language, culture, or social circumstances.
We are the leading health care provider in our service area, and among the largest community health centers in the country. During the past two decades, EBNHC has grown to care for more than 300,000 patient visits per year — more than any other ambulatory care center in New England. We deliver 1,000 babies annually, and our pediatrics department cares for almost every child living in East Boston.
Founded by private citizens of East Boston, Chelsea, Winthrop, and Revere, Massachusetts in 1959, North Suffolk Mental Health began with a mission of providing mental health services to individuals, and especially children, in these relatively under-served communities. It operated first as a Child Guidance Center in 1963, then grew into a Community Mental Health Center from the 1960’s through the 1970’s as Federal and State policies provided less institutional care and more support for community-based services. North Suffolk continued to grow in the number and types of services through the 1980s and 1990s to become one of the largest providers in the state. Today, North Suffolk Mental Health touches the lives of more than 10,000 people a year. Our staff of 900 assists families, children and individuals in 4 clinics, 38 residences and 74 programs.
North Suffolk helps achieve independence by providing a wide variety of treatment and rehabilitation services, by intervening as early as possible, by promoting prevention and education, and by participating in training and research.
North End Waterfront Health is committed to improve the quality of life for the residents of Boston’s North End and for the people we serve by providing high quality healthcare that is consumer oriented, culturally appropriate, neighborhood-based, affordable, and produces positive outcomes.
