Friendship Home’s mission is to enrich the lives of individuals with developmental disabilities and their families by providing quality respite care and support services in a safe and caring environment. Our programs build self-esteem and community involvement for our participants, while providing support for their families who may become overwhelmed and isolated by the daily demands of caring for their family members. While our programs directly address the needs of individuals with developmental disabilities and their families, we are proud of our efforts to serve the entire community by raising up the people that we serve as vital contributors to our communities.

New President and CEO
We are pleased to welcome Greg Jackson as our new President and CEO. Greg joins Friendship Home with more than 10 years’ experience in the human services field. Most recently, Greg worked for the Boys and Girls Clubs of Boston as Executive Director of the Charlestown Clubhouse, where he returned to the very place he spent much of his own youth. Under his leadership, he saw the Club grow into a wonderfully diverse, fully inclusive organization.
Before working in Charlestown, Greg served as Executive Director of the Boys and Girls Club of Marshfield. In this role, he led the Boys and Girls Club from its humble roots as a small after school program to its current success as a well-respected provider of services in the community.
Both roles gave Greg an opportunity to work closely with families and listen to their needs and concerns. He is very passionate about our mission to provide quality respite services to people with developmental disabilities and their families.
Greg can be reached via Email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling him at 781-659-8202.
