Knowing its importance to the success of our work, Project Bread is committed to diversity and inclusion, and we aspire to build a diverse staff team and community, including groups that are traditionally underrepresented among our sector leadership.

We appreciate your time and will review and respond to all applications received.

About Flexible Services

In 2018, The Commonwealth of Massachusetts received a five-year waiver from the Centers for Medicaid and Medicare to improve the ways in which MassHealth provides care to its members.  Among many other elements, includes funding for a pilot Flexible Services Program.  Through the Flexible Services Program, accountable care organizations (ACOs) may pay for health-related social needs like nutrition and housing supports.

Project Bread has partnered with multiple ACOs.  Through these partnerships we receive referrals from community health centers and primary care practices for individuals who are both food insecure and have a medical condition.  Upon receipt of referrals Project Bread staff conduct assessments and develop individualized service plans.
