One Can Help's 10 Year Anniversary Celebration 

One Can Help works with court-appointed attorneys and social workers to provide families and children at risk with small grants when no other aid is available, to help break the cycle of deprivation and hopelessness.

In our 10 years we have already helped more than 1,000 children and families. With your support, we help those in crisis stay connected with their families, succeed in school, get job training, remain in housing, overcome substance abuse, pay for child care and more—so they can begin to rebuild their lives.

Many former clients not only make significant strides toward becoming responsible adults and citizens, but are also inspired by the help they received to give back to others who struggle as they once did. As recipients make positive strides, their families and communities benefit, too.

6:30-7:15 PM - Cocktail Hour, music from jazz duo James Merenda and Jon Dreyer.

7:15-8:00 PM - Program, including Maria Mossaides, Child Advocate of Massachusetts.

8:00-9:00 PM - Please join us for more conversation and dessert following the program.

Make an IMMEDIATE difference in a child's life by donating today!

No salaries or overhead are paid from your donation. Our part-time administrative staff is funded by board contributions and foundation grants. In this way, 100 percent of your gift goes directly to help court-involved children and families. Please contact us at info@onecanhelp.org with questions.

Here is how your donation can help:

can pay for a train pass … so a child in a distant treatment program can receive regular visits from her mother who otherwise couldn’t afford the trip.

$150 can pay enough of the cost of a parenting class … so a young father can access the program and learn better discipline approaches.

$400 can pay a late gas bill … so a family with young children can stay warm and get back on their feet.

$800 can pay for a month of summer camp … keeping a young teen supervised and off the streets.
