Welcome To Centerboard

We are a nonprofit human services organization located downtown Lynn, MA (you can't miss our colorful mural, pictured above, thanks to Beyond Walls). Our mission is to revitalize our community by investing in its people and places. We support families and young people through housing, access to employment, education and financial empowerment. In addition, Centerboard is invested in Lynn’s creative economy by spearheading public art projects and running the non-profit gallery Visionspace.


At Centerboard, even a $1 donation can help North Shore families in need. So don’t give! (Okay, maybe give a little bit, it will feel good.)


Please join us as North Shore neighbors show their support for families, children, and those who are experiencing homelessness with our Third Annual “Hearts of Gold2019 "Whatever It Takes" Fundraising Gala and Live Auction” Fundraising Gala and Live Auction.

Thank You To All Who Took Part In Our
“Hole-Lotta” Fun Golf Fundraiser!
