Boston Populations: CCHI develops programs that target youth and special populations--such as the elderly, homeless, immigrants, and refugees--to improve their health and wellbeing and educational attainment.

With its main campus located at the foot of Boston's Beacon Hill, MGH has long been committed to creating healthy communities in the cities and neighborhoods its serves. In addition to working with community partners in Charlestown, Chelsea and Revere, CCHI also sponsors programs to improve the health and wellbeing of vulnerable populations.

Inspiring the city's youth
One of our core areas is providing opportunities for youth to learn the skills they need to succeed in a career and in life. to support this, CCHI has developed a suite of programs designed to engage youth--from summer jobs to science mentoring to college preparation and completion programs--and encourage them to explore science and health careers.

Ensuring access to care
CCHI also sponsors programs that target the health needs of immigrant and refugees, ensuring they have access to care in spite of language or cultural barriers. The Boston Health Care for the Homeless Program at MGH strives to assure quality care for homeless men, women, and children in metropolitan Boston.
