Grant Awarded for Healthy Chelsea Portal

SCI will be developing a web portal to support goals of Healthy Chelsea.
SCI Press Release

SCI is pleased to announce that we have received a grant of $25,000 from the Cabot Family Charitable Trust to adapt our community web portal to support the goals of the Healthy Chelsea Coalition. We will be hiring a part-time Community Connector to play a key role implementing this grant.

Based in the Community Health Improvement Team of MGH’s Chelsea HealthCare Center, Healthy Chelsea was formed to address the need to promote community wellness, with a focus on improving the environmental and social conditions of Chelsea neighborhoods to make healthy eating and physical activity a daily reality for Chelsea residents. Ultimately, the Coalition aims to reduce obesity and prevent obesity-related diseases.Read more

YourBrookline & Other Sites Taking Off

MyFallRiver.org Launched Today

We're just getting back from a press conference announcing the launch of the http://MyFallRiver.org website, the latest SCI community portal to be rolled out.  Our partners in Fall River have assembled a good, diverse group of community organizations to serve as sponsors and launch team members.  This broad initial participation seems to bode well for the success of the project.

Marcia Picard of Fall River Children in Balance commented at today's press conference announcing the site that she'd been involved in community work for some 30 years, and has been involved in countless resource directory & coordination of services projects.  She's enthused to be involved in a web-based initiative that won't become dated upon completion, as is often the case with print directories!

A companion site, the Fall River YOUth Zone funded by the Community Foundation of Southeastern Massachusetts, was also announced at today's press conference.  A full press release about the new sites can be downloaded below.
