Overview

Mission Statement

A charitable, community-based agency, responding to the basic needs of people of all ages, providing early childhood education and care, helping individuals develop their potential, creating positive family and community relationships, and fostering respect for diversity.  

Background Statement

Council of Social Concern (with legal name of Woburn Council of Social Concern, Inc) was founded in 1969 by a group of concerned citizens who wanted to promote a sense of "neighborliness" in the community and address the absence of quality, affordable childcare and housing issues.

 

Today, the Council of Social Concern assists over 2,200 individuals per year, with the support of close to 265 volunteers. We provide a range of services to address community needs:

 
  • Safe, affordable, quality child care through our Children's Center and Family Childcare System
  • Parenting education through our Family Skill Building Program
  • Supervised visitation through our Family Skill Building Program
  • Food assistance and community resource education through our Food Pantry

Client Testimonials 
 “The Food Pantry is a God send. Without it, I would have a very difficult time adequately feeding my son. I don’t qualify for Food Stamps or school reduced/free lunch, as I am barely over the income limit, so you are great help.”

  “It allows me to have enough money to pay my bills.”

  “Without the Food Pantry, I would not be able to survive at all during the month."

  “If it wasn’t for the Food Pantry,I would go hungry by the end of the month.”

  “The Pantry has allowed me to stretch my budget, allowing the food I purchase to be higher quality rather than bare minimum.”

   “If not for the Food Pantry, we would not have enough food to live out the month.”

   “I’m having a very tough time due to my children are getting older, and they eat more. Bills are getting higher, and my benefits are going down. I cry because I have never been this bad off. I don’t know what I would do without the Food Pantry.”

CEO/Executive Director/Board Comments

 1.  Although mortgage interest rates are currently low, we anticipate higher rates in a few years as the recession winds down.  Our board's Financial Planning & Development Committee will continue to look at ways to reduce our mortgage debt before this occurs.  One way the agency has been doing this is by paying down the mortgage principal at an accelerated rate.

CEO/Executive Director/Board Comments

1. Although mortgage interest rates are currently low, we anticipate higher rates in a few years as the recession winds down. The Financial Planning & Development Committee is looking into ways to reduce our mortgage debt before this occurs.
 
2. United Way revenues are shrinking and State revenues are increasing minimally, while demand for service remains high and government requirements related to quality of service have increased.  The agency has increased the number of fundraising solicitations and special events over the last few years to bring in more revenue to offset the shortfall experienced in United Way and government funding.

Impact

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?
