Essentials

Today in greater Boston, too many people struggle mightily to meet basic needs. The cost of living has skyrocketed, but wages haven't. Affordable housing is in very short supply, and families are making impossible choices: Buy groceries or pay the electric bill? Get my child's medicine or the pair of shoes she desperately needs? At ABCD we help to provide the necessities that bring stability and hope.
