We're located behind the main office building,

HOW YOU CAN HELP! Can you volunteer some time towards bringing some very big smiles to children's (and adults') faces in the Interfaith Terrace community? We need 75 willing pairs of hands to help us to do this!
Experts will be there to show you what to do within your comfort range. You just have to be willing to pitch in somewhere.
We're planning a day of community involvement, food, and fun. All we need is you!
See you on BUILD DAY!

Children at Interfaith drew pictures of their "dream playgrounds during Design Day. They're pictured here with representatives from KaBOOM! and the CarMax Foundation
Children went on some great field trips during the summer, to Mass Audubon's Broadmoor Wildlife Sanctuary in Natick, and Eastleigh Farm in Framingham.
Children at Pusan planted tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, basil, and lettuce- and got to snack on it all summer long!
