Since its inception, Family Van staff and leadership have continuously partnered with community members, Departments of Public Health at the state and local levels, churches and social service agencies to design programs and services that meet the ever changing needs of our Boston neighbors. These organizations continue to support our mission and values through their collaborative effort to deliver care to those who need it most. 

I am always struck by how much people seem to enjoy visiting the Van. The majority of folks come on with a smile, ready to joke around with their new friends on the Van, proudly reporting their weight loss or sheepishly admitting that they still can't resist that extra bit of salt. It’s a far cry from the dread I always feel getting my annual physical at the doctor’s
