The Cooperative for Human Services Inc. offers a monthly Cultural Connections outing for individuals involved in any of our Residential, Day or Individual Supports programs. At CHS we are constantly seeking new ways for our individuals to explore, interact and grow as members of the community.

The Department of Transitional Assistance and the Mass Cultural Council have collaborated to create The EBT Card to Culture Program which offers any EBT cardholders reduced or free admissions to many of Massachusetts’ finest museums and cultural institutions.

The program is a great opportunity for many of our individuals, because often times tickets to these types of organizations can get expensive. Individuals can now access over 125 museums and other educational cultural centers.

Each month, the CHS Cultural Connections Program organizes and promotes day trips to one of the many different cultural institutions. Last fall, we attended the Peabody Essex Museum for some local history. In December, the Museum of Science in Boston took us on a journey of science and technology exploration through dynamic programs, stage presentations and hundreds of interactive exhibits.

Our individuals are very interested in learning about the world in which they live, as well as simply enjoying the culture-rich city that we are a part of. Stay tuned for updates on our road trips, as we continue to explore the many cultural treasures this year!
