Our neighborhood is forever changed by the tragedy of April 15. Dorchester is a community of action and determination, and despite our grief and shock we are compelled to act.

On May 19, 2013, we invite you to take part in Hometown Comfort, a day for our community to honor victims and first responders by collecting needed blood, raising money for The One Fund Boston, and supporting one another with the embrace of a hometown.
