In 2000, leaders in the Ipswich Public Schools embraced the learning of all students by supporting foundational early development. With a commitment to our youngest children and a Massachusetts family support grant, a family center opened in a downtown storefront. Parents, educators, and community leaders partnered to bring an exceptional resource to the children in the Birth to Three Family Center. It continues to serve as a hub for young children and families and those working alongside them.

The Plummer Home's mission is to provide adolescent boys innovative support and services, in a safe and nurturing environment, to build the skills and relationships necessary for successful adulthood.
Horizons for Homeless Children helps children learn how to play, to share, to read, and to enjoy exploring their worlds in a structured environment. We help parents learn how to be nurturing and involved in the growth and development of their children, and help them learn and grow through job training, GED and college courses. We help to stabilize families so that they can weather any crisis, and thus help to break the cycle of homelessness that too often occurs in Massachusetts and around the world.
In 2003 eight energetic and passionate women created The Women's Fund, a philanthropic vehicle to raise funds that support women and girls in need.

Since its founding, the Women’s Fund has granted over $300,000 thanks to the generosity of women all across Essex County and corporate donations.
