Our Mission

MAPS’ mission is to improve the lives of Portuguese speakers in Massachusetts and help them become contributing, active participants in American society while maintaining a strong ethnic identity and a sense of community. We work with and for the Brazilian, Cabo Verdean, Portuguese, and other Portuguese-speaking communities to increase access and remove barriers to health, education, and social services through direct services, advocacy, leadership, and community development. Our free health and social services include Citizenship Assistance, Domestic Violence/Sexual Assault Advocacy and Support, Elder Services, Immigrant Integration Services, HIV/STI Prevention and Screening, Translation, and more.
