Dear Neighbors and Friends of South Boston:
The South Boston Association of Non-Profits (SBANP) was established in 2000 to bring together South Boston non-profits to proactively assess needs within our community, share information, strengthen services and enhance partnerships and collaborations. The SBANP is a 501(c)(3) not for profit organization, governed by a Board of Directors and dozens of dues paying members. The members represent a wide range of services including pre-school, youth development, family development, art, housing, education, civic engagement, substance abuse prevention, mental health, animal, senior citizens and more.
The SBANP provides a platform for timely communication and sharing of opportunities. Our e-mail distribution list is comprised of organizations, local businesses, elected officials and individual residents. We have also emerged as a coordinated entity to collectively impact community-wide issues and challenges, including substance abuse (Gillette Hope Grant, Hope & Recovery Forum); art opportunities (Young At Arts); under-aged drinking (South Boston CAN Reduce Underage Drinking, A Family Friendly St. Patrick’s/Evacuation Day celebration); and more.
We also would like to introduce you to our web site. The web site address is www.sbanp.org The content includes a South Boston Resource Guide and Activity Guide, a list and links to member agencies, a youth calendar and fundraising calendar. Special thanks to our PR and Marketing Committee including: Sr. Maryadele Robinson (Laboure) and Andrew Motta (Artists for Humanity), for developing the web site. The Youth Calendar is coordinated by Carrie Hilliker (Laboure) and a very special acknowledgement to Patti Callahan (South Boston Collaborative Center) for assembling the South Boston Resource Guide and Activity Guide (4th version).
We are grateful to all who have played a part in the growth of this important community resource. We meet every month and encourage anyone who may be interested in keeping our community strong and vibrant to contact us.
