Improving the lives of young children and adults with physical disabilities and other medical conditions requiring the need for hospital level care
Welcome to the Massachusetts Hospital School Foundation
Since 1904, the Massachusetts Hospital School Foundation has been raising funds for the Pappas Rehabilitation Hospital for Children so that it can offer the students it serves with programs and services it would not otherwise have access to. While the state of Massachusetts ensures that the students medical and educational needs are met in a safe, healthy environment, it is only through these funds, privately raised, that students are provided with the tools and experiences they need to thrive and fully realize their potential.
It’s here you’ll find out all the ways the Foundation has helped improve the lives of young children and adults with physical disabilities and other medical conditions requiring the need for hospital level care.

Pappas would like to express its deepest appreciation to all of the people who made a recent donation in support of the Campaign for Reservoir Farm – THANK YOU! These funds will be used to purchase equipment and supplies for the farm and for our therapeutic horse back riding program.
As you know, the 2022 Canton Road Race was held on Sunday, September 25th at the Trillium Brewery in Canton, MA. It was a great success!
Our heartfelt thanks to the Bank of Canton for providing a generous grant to the hospital’s Physical Therapy Department so they could purchase two new Rifton Adaptive Tricycles for our students.
As you know, the 2022 Canton Road Race is scheduled for Sunday, September 25th at the Trillium Brewery in Canton, MA. For many years, Pappas has received generous funding from the proceeds of this race that has allowed it to do extraordinary things for our students.
Your gift will provide students with:
- New equipment: To support the many recreational opportunities we offer the students
- Switch Devices: Many of our students have complex needs, are physically limited and rely on augmentative devices for communication. Switch devices help students to access a computer, play independently, communicate with their families and peers and access a wide range of educational opportunities
- Mobility Equipment: Our students benefit greatly from all terrain wheelchairs (to get out into the fresh air and visit our farm animals), adaptive tricycles, and individually designed mobility equipment
- Educational and Therapeutic Games: Our students love to play games with their friends and not only is it fun and engaging, but games are fundamental for the progression and stimulation of critical mind and body functions
