Welcome new EANE members for 2017:
Webster First Federal Credit Union – Central MA On January 20, 1928, a handful of men wishing to provide deposit and loan services to their community founded Webster First Credit Union. Through written agreement, these men associated themselves with the goal of establishing a thrift institution in order to accumulate and invest the savings of its members and provide these members loans. Webster First stayed true to their mission despite the hardships of those early years, emerged intact after the tribulations of the Great Depression, and continued to serve the local community. Over the years our operations, services, and membership have grown. Throughout the late 1980's and 1990's, they opened several new branches throughout Worcester County. In 1997, they joined the National Association for Federal Credit Unions (NAFCU) and added "Federal" to our name. They celebrated the Grand Opening of their new Operations Center in Worcester in 2009. In the early 2010's, they merged with several other local credit unions, including Saugus Federal, Fitchburg Federal, Winthrop Federal, and Filene Federal. Their newest branch, located in Hopkinton, celebrated its Grand Opening in late 2012.

Blow Molded Specialties – Pawtucket RI If it’s blow moldable, they can mold it! The team at BMS Plastics works with a wide range of materials and they are obsessed with quality! They are ISO-certified, providing their customers with top notch service and a high quality product, every time. Their ‘old fashioned’ approach to customer service includes their commitment to: Show up on time, do what they say, finish what they start – all with a please and thank you! Blow molding makes hollow parts, such as containers or bellows. They create a part by extruding a tube of plastic, called a parison, and then closing a mold on it. They pinch the tube at the bottom, welding it together, and then insert a blow pin in the top, which seals the top of the mold. They then inject air through the blow pin, which inflates the parison to conform to the shape of the mold. The mold opens, and the new part drops out.

They believe all children deserve a safe place to learn and grow. They exclusively serve youth, ages 5-18, so that they may receive dedicated mentoring, hope, and opportunity for a great future. It all started in 1860, when three women in Hartford, Connecticut, decided to take in some “street urchins” – undernourished, dirty-faced young boys with little more than ragged clothes on their backs, the hard-luck, forgotten kids of the Industrial Revolution. They didn’t know it then, but these caring ladies were the planting seeds of what would become a true American success story. Their idea took root as Boys’ Clubs, which soon began to sprout throughout New England and eventually across the nation.
In 1912, nine men with a vision and a mission, “associated themselves with the intention of forming a corporation under the name of Chicopee Boys’ Club, for the purpose of promoting the physical, mental and moral well-being of the boys of Chicopee by providing such means of education and amusement…” Today, their intentions and purpose continues to enrich and impact the lives of the youth of Chicopee.

Hilltown Village – Williamsburg MA It Takes a Village was founded by Cummington resident Maureen Shea in the fall of 2009 after the birth of her son.

But one afternoon, a good friend came over for a couple of hours, folded laundry, helped make dinner, and listened to Maureen share her truths. That visit and the comforting support it provided was a turning point for Maureen. Thus, the Village was born as a grassroots, community group of neighbors helping neighbors with newborns. The home visit program began and shortly thereafter the Village Closet was created. Today, It Takes a Village has two distinct branches — one in the Hilltowns of Western Massachusetts and one in Brattleboro, Vermont.

Visitation House - Visitation House was envisioned by Mrs. Ruth Pakaluk (1957-1998), mother of seven and dedicated supporter of life in Massachusetts. Ruth recognized the urgent need to establish a home for pregnant women in Worcester County, one that would surround them with a culture of life and allow them to choose life for their babies and for themselves. Ruth died heroically and with great faith at only 41 years of age after a seven-year struggle with breast cancer and did not get to see her vision come to life.
Not long after her death, a group of social service providers and active pro-life advocates, many of whom were Ruth's friends, was assembled at the request of now retired Bishop Daniel P. Reilly to study the need and feasibility of such a home for pregnant girls. The committee consisted of members of various organizations, including the Guild of Our Lady of Providence; You, Inc.; numerous Diocesan agencies; area crisis pregnancy centers; and Central Massachusetts Citizens for Life. After an exhaustive analysis, the committee determined that an urgent need existed for services similar to the ones provided by the Diocese at Merrilac Manor. The committee found that Problem Pregnancy, a local crisis pregnancy center, receives 6 requests per week for emergency housing. They surveyed other social service providers who reported more than 100 requests from pregnant teens for housing each year. These organizations welcomed the idea of Visitation House to address this unmet need. Since opening in 2005, Visitation House has welcomed over 200 women into their home at 119 Endicott Street Worcester, MA.
