Dorchester House Multi-Service Center

Since 1887, Dorchester House has been serving the Fields Corner neighborhood of Dorchester and beyond. They currently provide a large array of services which include Primary Care, dental health, behavioral health, social service case management, access to food through WIC programs and a weekly farmer’s market, and youth programming. Their mission to achieve the highest levels of health, well-being, and quality of life for their patients will be bolstered by this donation of artwork. Artwork will be placed throughout the new wing in conference, classroom, and training room spaces in addition to the waiting rooms in the adult medicine, family practice, urgent care, WIC, and pharmacy areas.

Department of Youth Services (Haverhill)

The Department of Youth Services (DYS) is Massachusetts’ juvenile justice agency. Their mission is “to protect the public and prevent crime by promoting positive change in the lives of youth committed to our custody.” They partner with many government and community organizations as well as with families to ensure their mission’s success. All youth interventions are intended to build knowledge, develop skills, and improve behavior. The majority of youth under the care of DYS have been adjudicated delinquent. Forty-five percent of those served are identified as having special education needs and 44% have been charged with having committed a violent offence.
The DYS Haverhill District office opened this spring and they have served roughly 30 youth so far. The dedicated staff runs programs to uphold the DYS mission including managing individuals’ case work, running group counseling, providing food, and support in securing employment and high school diplomas. Artwork now hangs in the entrance and reception areas, hallways, caseworker offices, conference room, and dining area.
