We’re Here to Help

There are people in Falmouth who cannot always afford to buy food, or to heat their home during the winter. There are people who live for days or weeks at a time with no electricity because they've fallen behind on their bills.

  • The cafeteria worker at your child's school who is a single parent
  • The checkers and baggers at your local grocery and retail store
  • The teacher assistant in your child's day care center
  • Your neighbor down the street who has been laid off and is having trouble meeting his/her mortgage payment
  • The elderly woman/man on a fixed income who lives across the street
  • Your next door neighbor whose husband left her with three small children
  • The families who have chronically ill children or are themselves struggling with incapacitating illness
  • The man or woman who drives your child's school bus

You or someone you love may have the need for assistance within the year. You can never know what will happen, but it's good to know we're here to help.

 

With over 600 volunteers, the campus is truly a place
where Falmouth residents can be of service, and in turn,
can come if they are in need of service.
