Designated in 1996 by the U.S. Congress, the Essex National Heritage Area covers the 500 square miles of eastern Massachusetts that lies north of Boston. It's not one location, but thousands of historical sites. Not a mile-long beach, but miles and miles of intact landscapes and glistening coastal areas. Not one story and tradition, but lifetimes of rich experiences that chronicle the history of our region, and our nation.
The Brain Candy Project's mission is to support the needs of parents/guardians living in the hospital with their critically ill children.We will collaborate with and support other non-profit organizations who are focused on charitable and educational activities that raise awareness about pediatric illnesses, traumas, and the support needs of families who are affected by them.
The Brain Candy Project is a project of United Charitable Programs – a registered 501(c)(3) public charity.

The Essex County Trail Association exists to protect access to the trails and open lands throughout the 6 towns we work in. We partner with both public and private landowners to ensure that the experience of open trails is positive for them as well as the trail users.
