United South End Settlements

The mission of United South End Settlements (USES) is to build a strong community by improving the education, health, safety and economic security of low-income individuals and families in Boston's historic South End/Lower Roxbury and to serve as a national model of successful neighborhood engagement. USES is hosting two full-time Commonwealth Corps members who are serving as Commonwealth Corps Education & Career Coaches, providing individualized coaching, goal setting & follow-up, benefits screening, referrals, and more to low-income families in Boston, impacting 66 individuals. Through their service, members are helping to pilot USES’s coaching model, serving families enrolled in workforce training and/or youth programs. In addition, they are leveraging 15 volunteers who are providing coaching to help connect participants to public benefits and additional services.
