Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
Centerboard is a community based organization that supports families and young people through housing, access to employment and education, and financial empowerment. We work with parents and teens to achieve independence by providing trauma informed care and case management. In addition, we work with local residents, businesses and elected officials to increase economic opportunity in the community. Through these efforts, we serve over 1500 people each year.
Founded in 1988 as Serving People in Need, the nonprofit now known as Centerboard sprang from a collaborative effort among Lynn’s business, public, and private communities to address the problem of homelessness, growing at that time as a result of job losses, industry closures, and declining community investments. In the 25+ years since, we have grown into a $12.5 million organization, serving over 1500 people annually via a range of services that support family stability. To accomplish our mission, we focus on creating strong, sustainable catalysts for change and development. We believe in Lynn as a vibrant, urban center that supports the entire region through a vital creative economy, safe and stable housing, jobs, and schools for all residents. This requires that we bring community attention and resources to our most vulnerable residents: low-income families and youth/young adults.
