The Children’s Trust

The Children’s Trust is on a mission to stop child abuse in Massachusetts. Our programs partner with parents to help them build the skills and confidence they need to make sure kids have safe and healthy childhoods. When children grow up safe and healthy in strong families, it changes the course of their lives.
