Human services are an important source of economic security and social justice in a community. While not everyone has an immediate need for these services, it is important that residents understand what resources are available and how they can access them.
Awareness of human services is made difficult by the large number of public and private agencies that provide them. Residents who don't receive the support they need struggle unfairly.
The Town of Weymouth has developed a Social Services Guide to assist residents in finding local programs that provide essential human services. This guide summarizes a variety of programs that are available in and around the community, and offers contact information for local providers as well as general information on the eligibility and scope of assistance they offer. By increasing awareness of local human services, the Town wants residents to know that their community is here to help.
Weymouth's Social Services Guide is not meant to be an exhaustive directory of service providers. Nor does the mention of any facility, organization, or program constitute an endorsement by the Town. To report any errors in information or to request the inclusion of a new reference, please contact the Mayor's Constituent Services Office at (781) 340-5012 or send a message to the Mayor's Administrative Services Coordinator. Please include your name, address, and phone number in any correspondence.
For more extensive information on human services or to consult with someone immediately about finding help, residents are encouraged to dial 2-1-1 and speak with a 24-hour, multilingual call center. Mass 2-1-1 is a program of the United Way, working in partnership with the Commonwealth’s Executive Office of Health & Human Services to maintain a free online Resource Locator for identifying community, health, and disaster services statewide. If you are unable to reach 2-1-1, call toll-free (877) 211-6277 or click here to search the Resource Locator online.
