$20,000 to provide and expand directly needed resources to DCF and court involved children and families to meet the increase in requests for assistance.
One Can Help (OCH) was created in 2006 by juvenile court attorneys and social workers because they saw that many of the underserved children and families they worked with could not access the resources needed to address concerns or to help children thrive, and identified a solution for this system-wide problem. OCH has helped more than 13,000 children and families across Massachusetts. OCH’s mission is to provide the missing resources at-risk youth, foster children and underserved families involved in the juvenile court and child welfare systems urgently need whenever those supports are not available elsewhere.
