Beverly Bootstraps

About Beverly Bootstraps

Beverly Bootstraps was first established in 1992 as a food pantry in the basement of the First Baptist Church. With the generous support of our donors, volunteers and the community at large, we have grown to be a leading social service agency on the North Shore.

We offer short and long term services including:

Food for residents of Beverly and Manchester By the Sea, MA
Housing Stability
Counseling and Advocacy
Adult and Youth Education
Discounted Retail Goods at our Thrift Shop

We are unique in our approach to the issues of hunger. While recognizing that people need food in hand to stem immediate hunger, our clients also need the opportunity to be embraced by the community, educated about the resources available and empowered to improve their own lives.

We differentiate ourselves by satisfying clients' needs through services that fill a community gap, that fulfill an identified need and where outcomes can be attained.

As we continue to grow, our commitment to the community remains the same: to provide critical resources to families and individuals so that they may achieve self-sufficiency. We accomplish this while maintaining our commitment to fiscal responsibility and serving as trusted stewards of the organization.

We exist to make the community better by positively impacting lives!
