On Feb. 21, Global Premier Soccer – Massachusetts traveled to Italian Home for Children located in Jamaica Plain, Boston, to donate soccer balls to the children to use on the organization’s soccer field.
Established in 1918, during the first fifty years, Franciscan sisters devoted their lives to raising and teaching thousands of children at the Home. As decades passed, the needs of the children arriving at the Home began to reflect more complex crises.
Today, the Home’s focus is providing residential and day treatment services for children of all nationalities with emotional and behavioral needs.
Licensed by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, the Home provides a comprehensive network of services to boys and girls with emotional challenges between the ages of 4 and 14. All of the services provided by Italian Home for Children are directed toward their primary goal: the reunification of the children with their own or alternative families and/or the preservation of families at risk.
“At GPS we pride ourselves in being part of the local community,” said Izabella Miranda, GPS-MA Marketing Manager.
“Our philosophy is focused towards helping with the development of deserving young people and we cannot think of anything that epitomizes this more.”
