About Us

The Boston Children’s Foundation (BCF) is committed to ending the cycle of trauma that perpetuates a culture of fear, maladaptation, and violence by turning youth’s natural energy towards healing activities, social empathy and positive relationships. Drawing on its founders’ decades of research, field application, and successful intervention in trauma psychology, BCF enters into partnerships with key allies locally and internationally to deliver active healing experiences for a child’s wholeness and a community’s health.

Building on the work of its founders’ pioneered child trauma interventions, BCF and its partners, including ICDR, USAID-Save the Children and UNICEF, have successfully reached over 400,000 children across the globe.
