Creative CollaborationsConnecting our neighborhoods to local, state, and national resources to achieve neighbor-defined goals.
We’re Better Together!
Collaborations are critical in creating sustainable change in our neighborhood. The Boston Project partners with a variety of local, state-wide, and national organizations to impact our community. These important partners provide additional resources, expertise, and influence far beyond what we could provide alone.

The act of sharing a meal provides a simple, yet prime opportunity for families, neighbors, and the larger community to come together–building true, mutual relationships and develop a greater sense of community around a common table. Each meal is donated, prepared, and served by volunteers from local faith communities; other volunteers come to intentionally build relationships and ensure a warm, hospitable environment.
The Restore Network is a informal relational network of various faith communities, nonprofits, and government organizations that share the same vision of restoration and reconciliation for our city. We come together periodically for networking, training, and collaboration.
The most abundant resources that we possess amongst the 1.5 million nonprofits in the United States are passion and knowledge, yet our most scarce resource is collaboration.
