Who is the Massachusetts Children’s Trust Fund?
The Massachusetts Children’s Trust Fund leads statewide efforts to prevent child abuse and neglect by supporting parents and strengthening families. As an umbrella organization, we fund, evaluate, and promote the work of over 100 agencies that serve parents and children. Supported by state, federal and private funding, we invest in Massachusetts’ most precious resource - children and their families.
The Children’s Trust Fund works in partnership with parents, communities, human service agencies, the state and federal governments, and private funders and supporters to invest in Massachusetts' most precious resource - children and their families. We pool all available funding centrally and then allocate it to achieve the maximum benefit for the good of the entire Commonwealth.
The Children’s Trust Fund researches the best strategies to strengthen families and funds community organizations that can provide the most effective family support programs. Service providers are selected for their ability to deliver outstanding services and to reflect the diversity of local parents. We help community organizations build their capacity to strengthen families by providing technical assistance, training, evaluation tools, and other resources.
The Children’s Trust Fund works with the media to raise public awareness about the availability and importance of family support programs. The programs we fund have been proven effective in helping communities support families and protect children from abuse. Our funded initiatives encompass research, training, evaluation, public policy and public awareness. The work we do now will continue to help Massachusetts families and children flourish for generations. Find out more about us at www.mctf.org.
