The 2014 Taste of Cambridge Beneficiaries:
Cambrige Camping's mission is to provide meaningful experiences to under-resourced, urban children in supportive and inclusive camp communities through enriching and inspired programs.
Food for Free: Bridging the gap between waste and want since 1981. Food for Free rescues fresh food – ffod that might otherwise go to waste – and distributes it within the local emergency food system where it can reach those in need. Through a combination of food rescue, farming, and transportation services, we give food programs year-round access to fresh fruits and vegetables, while our delivery program brings food directly to isolated seniors and people with disabilities. Our programs address, not only short-term hunger, but obesity, diet-related disease, and other long-term health effects of food insecurity and poor nutrition. In addition, food rescue –also called salvage or gleaning – reduces food waste.
Institute for Health and Recovery:
The Institute for Health and Recovery (IHR) is a statewide service, research, policy and program development agency. IHR designs its services based on an understanding of the impact of trauma. IHR’s mission is to develop a comprehensive continuum of care for individuals, youth, and families affected by alcohol, tobacco and other drug use, mental health problems, violence/trauma and HIV/AIDS. IHR’s work is based on principles of:
Establishing collaborative models of service delivery
Integrating gender-specific, trauma-informed and relational/cultural models of prevention, intervention, and treatment
Fostering family-centered, strength-based approaches
Advancing multicultural competency within the service delivery system
Margaret Fuller Neighborhood House:
The mission of the Margaret Fuller House is to strengthen and empower youth, families, and community residents. We work to address the economic, social and political inequities that shape the lives and futures of Area IV residents.
Paine Senior Services:
Established in 1905, Paine Senior Services is a program of the historic First Parish Unitarian Universalist Church, located in the heart of Harvard Square in Cambridge, Massachusetts. PSS serves Cambridge residents aged 60+ years old who prefer to remain independent in their community and need information about resources, services, benefits, and available options. PSS also serves families who have questions about available services and benefits. Experienced social workers guide seniors, caregivers, and family members in addressing current and longer term needs. Our social workers are available for phone consultations, short-term intervention, and longer term planning. Home visits are provided.
Transition House is an innovative nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization providing the tools people need to build safe and healthy lives. For almost 40 years, we've offered a full circle of care and support for adults and children overcoming the trauma of family and partner violence. We're a lifeline—the place where hope and healing begin.
We work with hundreds of adults, children and youth each year focusing on each individual's strengths and needs. Our trauma-informed programs emphasize personal empowerment, economic self sufficiency, education access, job skills development, permanent affordable housing, positive parenting, youth development, strengthening resiliency and overall wellness.
We are also the source for youth education, peer mentoring and counseling on healthy relationship development—critical violence prevention initiatives in our community.
