Mission Statement

The mission of Groundwork Southcoast (GWSC) is to bring about the sustained regeneration, improvement and management of the physical environment by developing community-based partnerships that empower people, businesses and organizations to promote environmental, economic and social well-being.

Who We Are

GWSC is part of the Groundwork USA network of independent, not-for-profit, environmental organizations called Groundwork Trusts. Locally organized and controlled, Groundwork Trusts provide services focused on improving their communities’ environment, economy, and quality of life.

As a Groundwork Trust GWSC represents a strong partnership between government, business, foundations, community groups, and residents. Projects serve a common agenda and are designed to accomplish other goals, such as stewarding urban waterways, brown field reclamation, job training, environmental education, and developing future leaders through targeted youth leadership development. All projects and activities of Groundwork are carried out to leverage resources for residents to transform their own communities.

What We do

GWSC works collaboratively to develop current and future leadership to steward urban waterways and brownfields in environmental justice communities in southeastern Massachusetts.
