Our Mission & History
The mission of the Reliant Foundation remains constant: to improve the health and well-being of individuals of all ages in the Central and MetroWest regions of Massachusetts. Our vision, however, is evolving. For several years, our external focus had been to target childhood obesity, and our internal focus had been to increase care and comfort for patients. In 2017, the Foundation expanded its focus to address two other critical public health issues: the opioid epidemic and children’s mental health.
Today Reliant Foundation raises funds year-round to bring our mission to life through community grant making. Community grants are focused on current public health crises within the Central and MetroWest regions of the state. In 2018 we will accept applications from non-profit organizations in our service area that are addressing: substance abuse (with emphasis given to the opioid epidemic), children’s/adolescent mental health, and childhood obesity. You can learn more about our guidelines and deadlines in the Grants section of our website.
