Massachusetts 211 HelpSteps   

Since 2005, HelpSteps has been a collaboration between the Boston Public Health Commission and Boston Children’s Hospital to help Boston residents locate agencies to address their unique healthcare and social service needs. Massachusetts has a wealth of health and social service resources, but many residents do not know what is available to them. Dr. Eric Fleegler, founder of HelpSteps, explains that “Boston is resource rich; however, it is difficult for individuals to navigate the multitude of resources and then programs’ eligibility criteria. HelpSteps streamlines the search. This new joint effort with Mass211 is an exciting next step to help families throughout the entire Commonwealth.” In addition to updating the agency database to reflect the merger, the HelpSteps website has also been improved to provide more accurate and efficient information. When Monica Valdes Lupi, JD, MPH was asked about this merger she said that “People need effective tools for navigating a complex maze of services. We’re excited for this new collaboration and look forward to working together to help communities on their journeys to improving their health.”
