It is a reminder of Ms. Beulah Providence’s favorite slogan: “Let’s keep Hope alive”.

It is important to note that this event is vital to this non-profit organization 501 (c) 3, who has for almost 50 years provided quality in home and resident care for numerous seniors and physically challenged members in the Roxbury, Dorchester, Mattapan, Hyde Park & South End Communities.   The pandemic has unexpectedly changed many dynamics that we considered to be the norm.   Our clients as well as employees are hurting in various ways.   However, this event is vital to the morale and legacy of the Caribbean Foundation of Boston which are faith, hope and love.  Love being at the heart of our service to the urban elderly population.
