Self Esteem Boston, a Jamaica Plain-based organization, is one of 100 local nonprofits to receive grants of $100,000 each through the Cummings Foundation’s “100K for 100” program, according to a press release.
Self Esteem Boston is an agency whose primary purpose is to teach self-esteem skills to the homeless, substance abusers, victims of domestic violence, individuals transitioning out of the criminal justice system, and the unemployed. The organization provides interactive workshops through client programs and staff training programs for other community agencies.
The grant funds the replication of Self Esteem Boston’s programs in 11 community health centers in greater Boston over the next five years.
“This is such an honor for us and a win-win for the entire Boston community,” said Marion B. Davis, president of Self Esteem Boston, according to the press release.
