The Dorchester FAMILY School Initiative (DFSI) helps to provide health, social support and enrichment services for children attending our partner schools: Joseph Lee School, Lee Academy and Oliver W. Holmes elementary schools. Our goal is to support before-school and after-school programming, coordinate social and emotional services within schools, expose the children to positive youth development activities that will help them improve their health and wellnes and provide enrichment activities that engage students in art, music, drama, and sports. We connect families with community programs and service. Additionally, we support teachers and the schools to strengthen math and reading skills.
