Dedham Savings Community Foundation Supports Peer Health Exchange

The Dedham Savings Community Foundation has donated $7,500 to Peer Health Exchange (PHE).  This grant will be used to help PHE launch a new app that will support young people across Greater Boston. The goal of the app is to increase access to personalized health content, provide tangible action steps for managing mental health, and build communities of young people with moderated discussions.


Peer Health Exchange’s mission is to empower young people with the knowledge, skills, and resources to make healthy decisions. They do this by training college students to teach a skills-based health curriculum in under-resourced high schools across the country.


The Dedham Savings Community Foundation is a privately funded foundation created by Dedham Savings in 2000 to provide financial support to charitable organizations that serve disadvantaged populations within the Bank’s community reinvestment area. These communities include Dedham, Needham, Norwood, Sharon, South Boston, Walpole, and Westwood and contiguous areas.  Typical requests are received from schools, libraries, family service organizations and non-profit organizations.  The Trustees of the Foundation accept grant requests from community organizations and make awards twice per year.
