Dimock Center

The Dimock Center in Roxbury is recognized nationally as a model for providing health and social service programs to more than 76,000 families with 17,000 unique patients and clients representing a wide range of socioeconomic and ethnic backgrounds. Founded in 1862, Dimock was the training ground for the first professional nurse in America, the nation’s first African American nurse and one of the first hospitals headed by a female doctor. Today, Dimock serves as a lifeline for many low income families of color.

When John Henry first visited Dimock, he spent several hours touring the facilities. Since then, the Red Sox Foundation has supported after-school programs for middle school children and teens and GED programming for drop outs, pregnant teens, adults and new immigrants. Dimock has also been the site of several Red Sox Foundation Nation Service Days, sponsored by Mansfield-based Covidien, including a major overhaul of a children’s facility and Dimock’s drug detox center.

As Former Red Sox President/CEO Larry Lucchino says:  “Those of us who work in professional sports live in the toy box of life.  In exchange for that privilege, we have a responsibility to use the team’s assets to do something that uplifts others.” Dimock is a great example.

The reaction from members at @bgcnri is just the kind of energy we need to kick off 2020 🎉 Employees from @nationalgrid donated their time and talents to revamp a blank wall at the Boys and Girls Club. And if that wasn’t already cool, when they noticed that certain board games had missing pieces, employees chipped in to buy the Club new games to start off the year 👏 Thank you National Grid!
