Mission Hill Summer Program
Mission Hill Summer Program (MHSP): PBHA’s MHSP serves families from Roxbury’s Mission Main and Alice Taylor housing developments, both predominately African American and Latino communities. Founded at the request of community members, MHSP provides crucial services for families who struggle to find affordable, innovative childcare. Community is a focus of MHSP–many families return year after year, and the staff lives in Mission. MHSP values both academics and working with advocacy and organizing groups in Mission Hill. MHSP focuses on violence prevention by having campers interact with youth from the South End’s Villa Victoria housing developments, a historically rival neighborhood, thus giving youth the chance to forge friendships which aim to prevent future acts of violence.
