Boston, MA On Thursday, March 23, BOMA Boston named its alignment with their new charitable partner, Bridge Over Troubled Water at BOMA’s 100th Anniversary Celebration. The 3-5 year partnership is one of BOMA Boston’s new strategic initiatives launched this year. BOMA Boston will be working with Bridge to help support their mission through community service activities, visibility and fundraising.
Bridge Over Troubled Water is Boston’s premier organization dedicated to transforming the lives of runaway, homeless, and high-risk youth through safe, supportive, and encouraging relationships and effective and innovative services that guide them towards self-sufficiency. Starting in 1960, Bridge has since evolved into a national model and program incubator for youth development services which are effective in helping the most troubled and vulnerable homeless youth to turn their lives around.
