Those Who Can For Those In Need



Life presents its challenges and we are not always ready for them. They can knock us down or off balance creating stress, fear, depression, and even isolation. We hope our website will get you started on the road to finding support, relief, and hope. Our resources cover the elderly, children, low income, homelessness, and losing a loved one.

Children’s Friend and Family Services seeks volunteer mentors ages 21 and older to be matched with one youth mentee from the North Shore. Youth are between the ages of 5 and 18, and as a mentor you would meet every week for at least two hours to establish a one-to-one relationship that over a year’s time matures into a genuine, caring friendship. Our mentors – like the individuals and families we serve – come from a variety of backgrounds and professions. Whether it’s taking a walk in the park, watching a movie, cooking or just talking on the phone – when you take time out of your day to enrich the life of a child, you’re making a real difference. Our current program waitlist has 29 youth, there is a significant need! If you are interested or would like to know more, please visit or contact Samantha Alves, Director of Youth Mentoring at or call 978-219- 1528.
