Community Partnerships at MBHP


At MBHP, being a responsible corporate citizen and directly supporting the communities in which we live and work is a vital part of our culture and mission. "Respect," "inclusion," and "awareness" are words that serve as a foundation for MBHP's commitment to social responsibility. Our Community Partnerships program is a combination of volunteerism and strategic partnerships with local nonprofit organizations within our neighborhoods. Contact: Avanelle Cole, Human Resources Manager, at 617-790-4036.

Employee Volunteerism

Our employees are a key component of MBHP's corporate citizenship efforts. Whether reading to students at the Condon School in South Boston (Everybody Wins Metro Boston), participating in fundraising relief efforts after the Haiti earthquake, donating thousands of dollars to purchase holiday gift cards for youth in need through DCF, or joining the MBHP team during the annual NAMI walk, our employees demonstrate our inherent commitment to social responsibility.

In addition to organized, MBHP-sponsored events, our employees are actively involved in their own communities as Big Sisters/Big Brothers and youth mentors, volunteer at numerous shelters and food pantries, participate in fundraisers such as the annual Aids Walk, Rodman Ride for Kids, and Making Strides Against Breast Cancer, and are actively involved in conservation and public health efforts.

MBHP has partnered with YMCA Training, Inc., for over a decade by providing leadership on Training, Inc., participating in the Partners Council, supporting students through mentoring, conducting mock interviews, and providing both internship and long-term employment opportunities.

Boston Homeless Census

Each December, the City of Boston Emergency Shelter Commission conducts an annual homeless census including a count of people living on the streets, emergency shelters for individuals and families, domestic violence programs, mental health and substance abuse treatment programs, transitional housing, and specialized programs serving homeless youth and homeless veterans. The census provides critical information on the scope of the problem of homelessness in Boston.
