On a mission

Collective Impact with Community Roots

We are a growing network of activists and community builders that seek access to high quality education, health, and housing for Roxbury, Dorchester, and Mattapan. Our work is coordinated and organized by a team, board, and advisors with deep community roots in our neighborhoods.

The Backbone Team Behind Higher Ground

Effective collective impact requires a high-level of coordination, relationship-building, accountability, and lived experience.
