About Us

Mission Statement: The mission of Centerboard is to revitalize communities by investing in their people and places.

Centerboard is a community-based organization that supports families and young people through housing, access to employment, education and financial empowerment. We work with local residents, businesses, and elected officials to increase economic opportunity in the community. In addition, Centerboard is invested in Lynn’s creative economy by spearheading public art projects and running the non-profit gallery Visionspace. Through these efforts, we serve over 1,500 people each year. We believe communities thrive when you invest in people and places.

Centerboard's Family Forward Resource Center is part of a statewide network of community-based providers offering multi-cultural parenting programs, support groups, early childhood services, information and referral resources and education for families whose children range in age from birth to 18 years of age.
