JP Unidos/United is a network of support for young people and the adults who care about them in the community of Jamaica Plain. The mission of JP Unidos/United is to create a village of support for young people by sharing resources and power, relationship building and collaboration.
We at JP Unidos/United see our youth as community assets. We strive to recognize the strengths of all our youth and provide opportunities to build upon those strengths. We seek to enable our community to seek out prevention based work while, proactively responding to any violence within our community. We aim to streamline services for JP youth by providing a forum to learn about available services and contacts to complete the linking process.
Through our various organizations we work to fill any service gaps to ensure that youth have access to all the resources and services they need. Through JP Unidos/United we will increase our capacity to meet the needs of youth (14-22 years old) who live, work and play in JP with the goal to not turn anyone away.
