Boston chosen for innovative partnership

Published on February 27th, 2018

Peer Health Exchange Boston has been selected by Boston Public Schools Partnership Fund to be a member of their opportunity portfolio for the upcoming school year. The opportunity portfolio is a catalog of vetted organizations who can partner with Boston Public Schools in a way that allows the schools to choose and fund the partners that best meet the needs of their school community. These partnerships are funded by BPS to serve students with high need in a more equitable, coherent and innovative way.

This year, Boston also received funding from Merck’s Foundation Neighbor of Choice community program. This $25,ooo award will support Boston’s our work in improving the quality of life for our students and in turn, their communities. The Neighbor of Choice program aligns with our vision to improve access to care for underserved populations.

We are also privileged to have received support from the Frank Reed and Margaret Jane Peters Memorial Funds for $10,000. With this funding, Peer Health Exchange Boston can continue to provide under-served students in the Greater Boston area with the health education they need to make healthy decisions. This directly connects to the Funds’ mission to promote health care and educational programming to underserved populations with special considerations to nonprofits that serve youth.

Lastly, AstraZeneca has generously donated $10,000 to Peer Health Exchange Boston for our service to students in teaching and providing them with the resources to build healthy lives now and in the future. AstraZeneca’s commitment to corporate responsibility centers around giving to organizations that improve patient health.

How can I join Peer Health Exchange's mission?
