EMPOWER

Beverly Bootstraps provides critical resources to families and individuals so they may achieve self-sufficiency. We offer emergency and long-term assistance including: access to food, housing stability, adult and youth programs, education, counseling and advocacy. We are community funded and supported.

Expanded Service Area

We are pleased to announce that our service area has been expanded. We will now offer critical resources to families and individuals in Hamilton, Wenham, and Essex in addition to our current service area of Beverly, and Manchester-by-the-Sea.  This decision to expand has been part of our strategic plan and came after collaborating with Acord Food Pantry to offer case management services there and realizing more of our services could be utilized in Hamilton and Wenham. Additionally, since we already work with Manchester, it was a natural extension to start working with Essex as well since they share a school system.  All of us at Beverly Bootstraps are excited about this expansion and to have the opportunity to help improve the lives of more people in need in our expanding community.

Help Feed Beverly

Beverly Bootstraps is here to Help Feed Beverly and to provide our community with ways to get involved so that you too can help give hunger the boot. We’ve heard from so many that want to help, that are worried about how people will keep afloat during these challenging times, concerned that children will go hungry.
