MESSAGE FROM THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR
Welcome to the Kennedy Center’s website and thank for your interest in our organization. I hope that you find the information in this site useful and please don’t hesitate to contact us if you would like to know more about the services we provide and/or the ways you can support our mission.
In 2014 the Kennedy Center celebrates its 50th Anniversary providing superior quality Head Start, toddler, preschool and after school education, childcare, elder care, and community services to Charlestown and the greater Boston community. As we celebrate the successes we have achieved during our first 50 years we also look forward to the next 50 years assisting those in our community who struggle with economic, language, employment and/or educational challenges.
We are grateful for our long-term partnership with Action for Boston Community Development (ABCD) who has supported the Kennedy Center’s efforts to bring high quality educational and social service programs to Charlestown. Moving forward into the next 50 years we expect our partnership with ABCD to continue while also expanding our service agreements, collaborations and partnerships with other local nonprofit and civic organizations within the greater Boston community. These valued relationships are key to maintaining the Kennedy Center’s responsiveness to current and emerging community service needs. Again, welcome to our website and thank you for your interest in the Kennedy Center.Respectfully, Terry Wm. Kennedy Executive Director
