About Brighton
map
The area of Brighton was established in the late 17th century and was first known as "Little Cambridge". The residents acquired legal separation from Cambridge in 1807 and officially named the town Brighton. The town was then officially annexed to the City of Boston in 1874 and it remains a part of Boston today.

In post colonial days Brighton was home to agricultural plots and stockyards, but with the extension of the street car lines in the 1800s came residential growth. Soon houses and apartments were built all across the neighborhoods.

Brighton is primarily populated by graduate students and young professionals. Along Washington Street you will find small family businesses and Saint Elizabeth's Hospital - reputed as one of the finest hospitals in the northeast.

Brighton is host to the Bryman Institute, Saint John's Seminary and part of Boston College. Nearby you will find some of the finest institutes of higher learning in the country including Boston University, Harvard University and MIT.

Paul Rishell and Annie Raines Thursdays in April
In April, blues fans will be in for a rare treat as Smoken Joe’s presents Paul Rishell and Annie Raines for a special artist residency on Thursday nights. Although they have become known for their close attention to pre-war acoustic blues styles, Paul and Annie first found their musical common ground in a Chicago/Texas-style blues band. Paul and Annie are equally passionate about their craft and devoted to the study and performance of a wide range of blues styles, from the syncopated acoustic guitar wizardry of Blind Lemon Jefferson and Son House to Chicagoan “Little” Walter Jacob’s swinging amplified harmonica. Paul has reached what former Boston Phoenix writer Ted Drozdowski called “a place deep and resonant as Robert Johnson’s crossroads, where authenticity, soul, and a sense of purpose and commitment ring out in every note he sings and plays.” Annie has added vocals, mandolin, piano, and other instruments to her musical arsenal, while being recognized by top professionals and fans worldwide as the “queen of the blues harmonica.” Says blues legend Pinetop Perkins, “She plays so good it hurts!”

Cradles to Crayons Volunteer Event
Let's get our children at St. Julia's to help other children in need!

Please sign up for an afternoon of volunteering at the Giving Factory (space limited to 35)

If you are unable to attend that event, there are two other volunteer opportunities:

-Bringing your own gently used toys and children's clothes to the giving factory

-Cradles to Crayons needs 35,000 "well-wish" cards by August.  These are index cards with    

  messages from our children to those in need  Mission & ModelThe Need

Cradles to Crayons has a special niche, and—in its two host cities—meets a critical need.

More than 305,000 Massachusetts children 12 years old and younger live in poor or low-income households. In any given year, more than 100,000 Massachusetts children will experience homelessness.

But statistics don’t get to the heart of what we do. We help kids in poverty: kids who don’t have shoes that fit, or a coat warm enough to fend off winter winds, or a backpack to take their books and supplies to and from school. When kids don’t have these basics, they suffer. They have a hard time learning in school. They don’t feel valued.

The Mission

Cradles to Crayons provides children from birth through age 12, living in homeless or low-income situations, with the essential items they need to thrive - at home, at school and at play. We supply these items free of charge by engaging and connecting communities that have with communities that need.The Model

Cradles to Crayons collects new and nearly new children's items through grassroots community drives and corporate donations. Donations are then processed and packaged by volunteers, and are distributed to disadvantaged children across the state through a collaborative network of social service agencies and school partners.
