Community Life

Charles Street actively participates in the life of the community. In keeping with our social mission, we operate the following community organizations:


Hamilton-Garrett Music and Arts Academy

This after school program provides a performing arts education to children in grades 3-12.
Many of its students have gone on to study at Boston Arts Academy, as well as Berklee College of Music.

Our Time and Space

Seniors from all over the Greater Boston area gather together for activities that help them to remain active, motivated, and inspired. Charles Street highly values the presence of seniors and cares about their physical, social, and spiritual well-being.

Charles Street Food Pantry

As a participating member of the Greater Boston Food Bank, Charles Street’s Food Pantry continues to distribute meats, canned goods, and other food products to hundreds of families twice a month.
