Mission Statement

Our mission is to heal and uplift individuals, families and our community. Our vision is to redefine the model of a healthy community through equitable access to comprehensive health care and education.

Background Statement

The Dimock Center was founded as the New England Hospital for Women and Children in 1862 by Dr. Marie Zakrzewska. It was the first hospital in New England opened and operated by women for women, and one of a few training centers in the country for women physicians and nurses. Our namesake, Dr. Susan Dimock, was a surgeon and the hospital’s first attending physician. In 1969, we became the Dimock Community Health Center, a community-based health center led by diverse leadership. Situated on a nine-acre site in Roxbury that includes nine buildings constructed over a fifty-eight year period (from 1872 to 1930), our campus was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1985, designated as a National Landmark in 1991, and selected as a Boston Historical Landmark in 1995. Nationally recognized as a model for the delivery of comprehensive, integrated health, human services and education in an urban community, The Dimock Center serves a predominantly low-income population. We are the second-largest health center in Boston and the largest employer in Roxbury. In the past year, we served more than 18,000 individuals and families.


Dimock has three main service areas designed to meet the full scope of our community’s needs. Health Services include Adult Medicine, Pediatrics, OB/GYN, Orthopedics, HIV/AIDS Community Care, Eye Care and Dental Care. Behavioral Health Services include the full continuum of substance use treatment services, from inpatient detoxification to residential recovery and outpatient support, mental health services based in our health center, a family shelter, family sober living program, and apartments for families in recovery and group homes for adults with developmental disabilities. Child and Family Services include Early Head Start, Head Start, Dimock Foundations for Learning (full-day early childhood education for the community), early intervention, home visiting and GED preparation. Our provision of integrated, holistic care is unique in a community health center setting and distinguishes Dimock locally and nationally.

Impact Statement

The Dimock Center's top accomplishments from the past year include:

1) Completing our $16M Building the Road to Recovery capital campaign to renovate and expand our inpatient detox; 2) Exceeding our fundraising goal by 13%, raising $1.58M for all programs and services; 3) Fully integrating pediatric and oral health care, providing dental screenings and administering fluoride at all pediatric visits and in our Head Start program, and referring pediatric patients to our dental services; 4) Surpassing the state and nation in 9 of 13 clinical quality measures, including access to prenatal care, child immunizations, asthma management and cholesterol treatment; and 5) completing the planning to launch our next three-year strategic plan, focused on patient growth, attraction and retention of staff and integration of our services.

Our top goals for the coming year include:

1) Opening the Dr. Lucy Sewall Center for Acute Treatment Service in early spring 2018, to provide more than 4,000 men and women annually with inpatient detox treatment; 2) Meeting or exceeding our increased fundraising goal of $1.7M through expansion of individual and foundation support; 3) Launching our Accountable Care Organization (ACO) model, focused on delivering integrated physical and behavioral health care to MassHealth (Medicaid) patients, which will measure our success by improved health and social determinant outcomes; and 4) Launching our three-year strategic plan.

Needs Statement

Dimock’s top most pressing needs include:

1) Expanded space/capacity to respond to the significant demand for substance use treatment by members of our community and people across the Commonwealth, as the opioid epidemic continues; 2) Diversified donor base, including individuals, foundations and corporations, to help support critical programs across campus; 3) Enhanced resources, including transportation and home visiting, to provide access to Dimock’s services for our community’s most vulnerable members, including those with high rates of chronic diseases, mental health issues, substance use and/or unstable social situations, 4) Expanded wellness programs, including nutrition education, healthy cooking and physical activity, especially for children and families, to respond to the increasing rates of obesity and diabetes in our families; and 5) Volunteer service, including large groups who complete service projects and individuals who provide sustained expertise and work in priority areas (including communications and quality improvement).

CEO Statement

The Dimock Center represents a unique model of care that extends beyond the current construct of health care. At Dimock, we are invested in providing holistic, comprehensive health and human services. Our mission is to redefine health by integrating family education and behavioral
health with primary care. In doing so, we have created an enhanced, more impactful approach to wellness in underserved communities. Through our model we are addressing inequities in access and disparities in wellness outcomes. Additionally, our services represent $31 Million in savings to Medicaid given our costs are 21% lower for Medicaid patients than other non-health center providers (source: 2017 Capital Link Value Impact Report).

We work diligently to engage community, individual donors, corporations and legislative leaders in our work. We welcome opportunities to highlight our expertise in addressing the social determinants of health and wellness. We also act as a convener of stakeholders invested in
improving our systems of care.

Finally, as the largest not-for-profit employer in Roxbury, we have a significant economic impact on one of the most under resourced areas of Boston. We work diligently to provide career pathways to our employees, often as a first employer. We also contribute significantly, directly and indirectly, to our local economy through our purchasing power. Our total economic impact is over $67 million when accounting for direct health center spending, community spending and taxes (source: 2017 Capital Link Value Impact Report).

Behavioral Health Services

Behavioral Health Services support men, women and children with mental illness, substance use disorder, developmental disabilities and homelessness. Children, teens and adults receive behavioral health services in the health center. We provide the full continuum of substance use treatment services, from inpatient detoxification to residential recovery and outpatient support, uniquely positioning Dimock to offer long-term recovery support to men and women. Our inpatient detox provides a safe, medical withdrawal from alcohol and/or opioids over seven to 14 days. Residential recovery includes four programs for men and women, each serving 20 people, offering housing and supportive services from one month to more than one year. Our outpatient addiction recovery services offer individual and group support geared toward patients’ different stages of recovery. Dimock provides Medical Assisted Treatment (MAT), which combines behavioral health therapy and medication to support patients in their recovery. The program is based in our health center’s adult medicine clinic, reducing barriers and stigma to care.

We support homeless families and adults with development disabilities via: the Mary Eliza Mahoney House Family Shelter, named for the first African-American nurse in this country who was trained at the New England Hospital, providing housing and case management services for approximately one year to 26 families (recognized as one of a few shelters welcoming male heads of households); the Ruth Kelley Ummi’s House Family Sober Living Program, which provides longer-term housing and support for 13 families in recovery (many of whom who are dually diagnosed and previously incarcerated) and their children; permanent housing for men and women in recovery and their children; and congregate living programs for adults with developmental disabilities.

Budget  $10,019,000.00
Category  Mental Health, Substance Abuse Programs, General/other Inpatient Mental Health Treatment
Population Served Alcohol, Drug, Substance Abusers People/Families with People of Developmental Disabilities Females
Program Short-Term Success 
By the end of FY18 (June 30, 2018): 1) our new Dr. Lucy Sewall Center for Acute Treatment Services will be open, providing inpatient detox to more than 4,000 men and women annually; 2) We will expand our electronic medical record (EMR) into the inpatient detox, seamlessly linking patient medical records in behavioral health and health services; 3) We will expand our training offerings for Behavioral Health staff, ensuring that they benefit from evidence-based, culturally-competent knowledge and skills to inform their work with patients; and 4) We will increase the number of substance use treatment patients who receive primary and specialty care in the health center, in many cases, providing preventive care for the first time for some adults in recovery. 
Program Long-Term Success 

We will continue to be a leader in providing comprehensive mental health, substance use, and developmental disability services. Dimock will be viewed as a leader in this field, and a model in the delivery of integrated care. Our efforts will lead to improved health outcomes for individuals, longevity in recovery and reduced rates of recidivism (return to inpatient detox). 

 We are proud that Dimock is recognized as an innovative provider of the full continuum of substance use treatment on one campus. Our ability to connect and refer patients from inpatient detox to residential recovery to outpatient services in our health center improves their success in long-term recovery.  


Program Success Monitored By 

We track and measure the success of our Behavioral Health Program by capturing patients' health history, demographics and past experiences in Dimock's substance use treatment programs. We also measure our success by patient feedback. In the past two years, patients have rated the care they receive in our inpatient detox as very good and excellent. This is testament to our strong model and the competent, caring staff (including physicians, psychiatrists, nurses and recovery specialists) who support patients. 

When we expand the Electronic Medical Record to the inpatient detox, we will improve our data collection and assessment of the program's success, including by tracking numbers of patients who complete our inpatient detox and move on to residential and outpatient services on our campus and who become patients of our health center. 
Examples of Program Success 

In the past year, Behavioral Health Services provided a mental health screening for 95% of pediatric and adolescent patients in the health center, linking them to mental health support immediately, if necessary, and continuing to support them. In our inpatient detox program, Dimock’s recidivism rate (the rate at which patients return to inpatient detox after completing the program) in FY16 (July 1, 2015 – June 30, 2016) ran at approximately 37%. In FY17 (July 1, 2016 – June 30, 2017), it dropped to below 30%. In addition, 100% of clients who completed treatment were referred to other Dimock programs for continued recovery services.

In January 2017, we developed a new focus for the Ruth Kelley Ummi’s House (RKUH). Following a loss of annual funding from the federal HUD Continuum of Care program, precipitated by a reduction in the HUD budget, we converted the program to a Family Sober Living House, with support from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts’ Bureau of Substance Abuse Services (BSAS). RKUH now provides an enhanced program model of longer-term housing and an additional level of staff support. We continue to serve the same target population of women in recovery and their children. Many of the women are dually diagnosed, HIV-positive and previously incarcerated, and most of their children are involved with the Department of Children and Families. RKUH meets a significant need in the community for mothers and children who would be homeless without this support. Thirteen families currently live in the House, including 17 children ranging in age from six months to 16 years old (including three sets of twins). RKUH is just one of two family sober living programs in the Commonwealth.


Child and Family Services

Our Child and Family Services offer education, support and training to families and individuals from infancy to adulthood via Early Head Start, Head Start, Dimock Foundations for Learning (full-day early education community members), early intervention, home visiting and Hi Set (GED) preparation. All of our early education programs have received the distinction of NAEYC (National Association for the Education of Young Children) accreditation.

Budget  $8,227.00
Category  Health Care, General/Other Early Intervention & Prevention
Population Served Children and Youth (0 - 19 years) Families Adults
Program Short-Term Success 

In the past year, we reached 1,404 families via early childhood education (Head Start, Early Head Start and Dimock Foundations for Learning), early intervention, home-based family visiting and adult education. In the spring, we created a new name for our community-based early childhood education program, Dimock Foundations for Learning, to reflect the comprehensive grounding that young children receive for their cognitive, emotional and social development in preparation for success in kindergarten and beyond. We are proud that teachers from our early childhood programs created the name.

We welcomed new program staff, including a Director of Curriculum and Training, Family Engagement Manager, Nurse and Nutritionist who provide support to our teachers and families, in the classroom and through other activities. We increased our focus on nutrition and exercise via cooking classes with parents and children. After preparing and enjoying a delicious dish and learning how to shop for ingredients on a budget, parents take home the recipe and ingredients to make the dish with their families. In the coming year, we will expand these efforts through a new Wellness for All Initiative that further integrates movement and learning about nutritious foods into the school day and in family programming.

Program Long-Term Success  Our Child and Family Services programs provide comprehensive and critical support to Dimock families. These services reflect our holistic approach to caring for and strengthening people's bodies and minds. The program will continue to engage parents and other family members in young children's education, while providing an outstanding foundation in education and development to very young children. 
Program Success Monitored By 
Child and Family Services captures and tracks program outcomes, including numbers of children and families served in all their program areas. In the past year, our early childhood education programs (Early Head Start, Head Start and Dimock Foundations for Learning) were fully enrolled. This success is reflective of the strong leadership in the program (a new Vice President of Child and Family Services came to Dimock in fall 2015), dedicated, caring teaching staff and Dimock's outstanding reputation in the community. 
We also measure the success of the programs based on develompental changes and benchmarks for reaching developmental milestones. In the past year, 100% Head Start children met these benchmarks.  
Examples of Program Success 

Dimock's GED and Adult Basic Education Program received the second highest performance point total of the 26 Department of Elementary & Secondary Education (DESE) in Boston over five years.

In the past year, 100% of Head Start children received an oral care screening at the start of the school year. This represented an important opportunity to educate children and their families about the importance of oral care, and also connect them to our health center for ongoing dental and primary care.

Health Services

Dimock’s Health Services Programs, based at our community health center, deliver comprehensive health maintenance, screening, immunizations and preventive care to adults, teens and children within specialized clinics, including Pediatrics, Adult Medicine, OB/GYN, Podiatry, Orthopedics, HIV/AIDS Community Care, Eye Care and Dental. We also provide an onsite pharmacy, in partnership with Eaton Apothecary, to ensure that patients can easily access their medications. And we offer onsite physical therapy, in partnership with Bay State Physical Therapy.

The health center’s services provide full integration of primary care and behavioral health services for adults and children. This is a distinguishing feature of The Dimock Center, and ensures that patients access and benefit from comprehensive health and wellness from a unified team of physicians and mental health practitioners.It also combats any stigma to accessing behavioral health support, present in a number of populations we serve. At each adult, pediatric and OBGYN appointment, patients receive a mental health screening and an immediate connection to a clinician (or an appointment within two weeks), if necessary.

We have also integrated pediatric and oral health care, providing dental screenings and administering fluoride at all pediatric visits and referring pediatric patients to our dental services. In the past year, our dental team also screened 100% of children in our Head Start. Dimock is a Patient-Centered Medical Home Level III, distinguished for our provision of the highest quality of integrated care.

We are also launching an Accountable Care Organization (ACO) model in the health center. A new way to deliver Medicaid services to low-income members of the Commonwealth, an ACO will foster coordinated care for patients focused on best practices and outcomes as opposed to value. To be launched in March 2018, this represents a transformation in how we deliver care to patients, and a significant opportunity to further strengthen our physical and behavioral health integration.

Budget  $14,719,000.00
Category  Health Care, General/Other Patient Care/Health Care Delivery
Population Served Families Adults Children and Youth (0 - 19 years)
Program Short-Term Success  By the end of FY18 (June 30, 2018): 1) More than 4,000 patients will be enrolled in the Dimock ACO model, with Dimock as their home for primary care and additional services. Patients will receive coordinated, integrated care, leading to improved physical and behavioral health outcomes. 2) 100% of pediatric and adolescent patients will receive a mental health screening during primary care visits, as part of our multi-year grant from the Smith Family Foundation to strengthen pediatric integrated behavioral health care. 3) 100% of pediatric patients will receive oral care screenings and flouride treatment at their primary care visits.
Program Long-Term Success  The Dimock Community Health Center will remain a focal point of our community, attracting and welcoming adults, children and families to our campus to benefit from comprehensive, integrated care. Health center patients will be seamlessly connected to Dimock's other services of behavioral health and child and family support. Similarly, individuals and families who receive care in these other service areas will be seamlessly connected to the health center to become primary and specialty care patients. 
Program Success Monitored By  We measure the success of the health center's services qualitatively and quantitatively. We track all patient data, including demographics, visit reason and outcomes and other services received at Dimock. We track quality measurements in various health outcomes that are compared to state and national numbers. As we strengthen our IT infrastructure, we will be better able to capture and report on patient outcomes, including patients who receive care in all service areas.  We use patient outcomes to inform our work, improve our care and understand any gaps in services. 
Examples of Program Success 

The Dimock Center is the second largest community health center in Boston. We are recognized locally and nationally as the only community health center to offer such breadth and depth of services in one location. As we strengthen our integration of services, we will continue to measure the improved health outcomes of our patients, not only in health center clinics but also in other service areas. Our strong health outcomes, in some cases surpassing national outcomes, is testament to our success.

Dimock has been a focal point of our Roxbury neighborhood for more than 150 years. Furthermore, Dimock patients tell us of the special, and in some cases, lifesaving, role that Dimock plays in their lives. We are proud to serve generations of families. Many current patients have been coming to Dimock for their care since they were children and now bring their own children and grandchildren here. Patients also speak of the deep, long-lasting relationships they and their family members form with Dimock physicians and nurses, feeling like these staff are part of their own family. This feedback from patients complements their strong health outcomes and reaffirms the success of our work.

CEO/Executive Director/Board Comments

Our most pressing challenges today relate to the uncertainty and instability inherent in the current iteration of health care reform. Additionally, we are concerned by the diminishing support for federally funded family education services. Our patients and families continue to experience inequities in income, face rising costs in and around Boston and are disproportionately impacted by social determinants of health. Our employees are also experiencing the negative impacts of health care reform and income inequality.

Our Family Education Services provides education to over 500 children and adults each year. Our federal and state grants that support these programs have been level funded and in some case decreased. At the same time, our expenses for food, salaries and other operating expenses continue to rise. This imbalance of revenue and expenses restricts our ability to grow and support comprehensive programming.

Our primary care and behavioral health programs serve over 20,000 individuals each year. These programs are largely dependent on net patient service revenue and state contracts. As the health care system and payment reform continue to be in flux, we are at greater risk of a declining ability to care for the most vulnerable and high cost patients in the system. We are constrained in terms of hiring and offering competitive salaries in this environment.

Our staff, as our most precious resource, has already felt the brunt of the instability of the nation’s health care system. Our health care insurance costs increased by over 20% in the last year. We are faced with the challenge of absorbing as much of the increase as possible while having to pass some of that increase onto to our employees. We are extremely concerned about the impact of this increase on the health and wellness of our employee base.

Dimock's primary medical partner is Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, and we also work closely with Partners HealthCare System, Boston Children’s Hospital and Boston Medical Center. We refer our patients to these providers for advanced testing, assessment and inpatient care. We collaborate with a number of colleges and universities to provide undergraduate and graduate students with internships, including: Boston College, Harvard University and Wellesley College. We also partner with John Hancock and their MLK Scholars Program, which provides paid summer internships for 15 Boston high school students who are placed across Dimock’s service areas.

We have expanded our Corporate Partnership Program to provide generous corporations with deeper Dimock connections. This includes opportunities for individual volunteerism and group service days; leadership positions on one of our three boards; and the creation of Dimock fellowships, wherein corporate colleagues share their expertise and time to support Dimock’s priorities.

Our Road to Wellness 5K Walk/Run is a collaborative effort. We created the event in 2015 with the Boston Athletic Association and HoodFit. Tufts Health Plan is the presenting sponsor. The event welcomes our patients, families, staff and community members (from babies to older adults) to Dimock each September to participate in the only 5K of its kind through the streets of Roxbury. This free event promotes manageable steps to improving one’s health and wellness.

We also partner with the Governor, Mayor and other legislative leaders, who are strong advocates for Dimock’s and our substance use treatment model, in particular. They have championed our capital campaign and inspired others to support us.

CEO/Executive Director/Board Comments

Our organization is comprised of over 500 employees, a significant number of whom are hired from our surrounding communities. Given the rich academic and medical community represented in Greater Boston, we are often in direct competition with other health and human service agencies for employees. Our current average employee turnover rate is approximately 30%. We are working diligently to insure that we are offering salaries that reflect the average market rate and attempting to enhance our benefits where possible.

Also, we recently hired a Chief Officer of Operations Integration (COO) to better distribute the work load of our senior team while allowing for an intentional focus on system integration and enhanced operational efficiencies. This addition to our team will also allow for increased team bandwidth so that we can focus on strategic growth and revenue generation.

CEO/Executive Director/Board Comments

Dimock maintains strong leadership boards. We have three boards: the Dimock Community Services Foundation Board, Community Services Board and Health Services Board. The Foundation Board maintains overall fiduciary responsibility for the entire organization while the Community Services and Health Services Boards maintain authority over the behavioral health/family education programs and health center respectively. Our directors are reflective of our community and corporate partners. All board members are engaged and invested in the success of our organization.

Our Foundation board maintains the following committees: nomination and governance, development, strategic planning and finance. Members of the other Dimock boards also sit on these committees allowing for enhanced communication and coordination of efforts.

Our newest group of leaders is the President's Council, established in 2017 as a way to engage senior leaders with Dimock without a significant time commitment. The Council includes CEOs of our corporate partners and other leaders in the community. All members of our Community Foundation, Community Services and Health Services Boards are honorary members of the Council. President's Council members stay connected with Dimock through event attendance, visits with the CEO and ongoing communication. We hold an annual gathering of the Council, hosted by a Community Foundation Board leader, which includes a high level briefing on Dimock by the CEO, a call to action about ways to support Dimock and networking.

CEO/Executive Director/Board Comments

Dimock has worked to strengthen our financials over the last decade. We moved from negative operational margins in the previous decade to a position of stability. Our financial indicators and trends represent continued growth, debt reduction and capital investments.

Our nine-acre, nine building campus represents an asset of increasing value. We have renovated and expanded our health center with a 4.9 million dollar competitive federal grant. This allowed for an expansion of our clinical space and the integration of outpatient behavioral health and primary care. Additionally, we completed a 16 million dollar capital campaign to renovate and expand our inpatient detoxification center which will be completed in early 2018.

The Impact tab is a section on the Giving Common added in October 2013; as such the majority of nonprofits have not yet had the chance to complete this voluntary section. The purpose of the Impact section is to ask five deceptively simple questions that require reflection and promote communication about what really matters – results. The goal is to encourage strategic thinking about how a nonprofit will achieve its goals. The following Impact questions are being completed by nonprofits slowly, thoughtfully and at the right time for their respective organizations to ensure the most accurate information possible.

1. What is your organization aiming to accomplish?


2. What are your strategies for making this happen?


3. What are your organization’s capabilities for doing this?


4. How will your organization know if you are making progress?


5. What have and haven’t you accomplished so far?
