Fields Corner Crossroads Collaborative's New Leadership is Worth Celebrating

November 15, 2021

MassCOSH is pleased to announce the Fields Corner Crossroads Collaborative has named its first program director Keyla Kelley, MS, CCLS, CEIM, CLC. In 2018, thanks to a three-year funding incubation grant by Boston Children’s Hospital’s Children’s Health Equity Initiative, eight Fields Corner-based organizations have joined together to fight for good, safe jobs, improved child health, increased community leadership in local advocacy efforts, and more. The organizations include All Dorchester Sports and Leadership, Asian American Resource Workshop, Boys & Girls Clubs of Dorchester, DotHouse Health, Louis D Brown Peace Institute, MassCOSH, New England United for Justice, and VietAid.  

Kelley holds a Master’s degree in Child and Family Studies from Wheelock College and has worked in a variety of settings including Boston Medical Center, WIC, Care Dimensions, and Boston Children’s Hospital where she served as an advocate for social and economic equity, youth wellbeing, and family-centered care. 

MassCOSH will be joining with its partners Saturday, November 20, 2021, from 9:00am-11:00am for the group’s first Harvest Festival. The outdoor event will be taking place at 1565 Dorchester Avenue between Town Field and Doherty-Gibston Playground and will be your chance to learn more about our exciting collaboration and discuss ideas you have for the Dorchester neighborhood. The Festival will include family activities, activities for children, information about community services such as SNAP, and giveaways. MassCOSH will also be offering short trainings on workplace rights and COVID-19 health and safety on the job. Those who complete our training and a brief evaluation will be given a $10 Dunkin’ gift card.
