Emergency Assistance

The Boston Kroc Center partners with local food pantries and emergency response agencies to offer emergency assistance, one deserving family at a time. Whether they need help keeping their lights and heat on, or paying for a much-needed prescription, donated funds make sure basic needs are met for 40 families every month.


Membership Financial Assistance

No one in need is turned away from the life-changing opportunities at The Salvation Army Boston Kroc Center through the Boston Kroc Scholarship Program. With an average of 1,500 individuals on scholarship, this is by far the Boston Kroc Center's largest outreach and single greatest need for community support.
