Social Services


Social services are a vital source of economic security for many households. Residents can find social services using the Town's Social Services Reference Guide or dial 2-1-1 to speak with a 24-hour, multilingual call center at the Mass 211 program.

Mass 211

Mass 211 is an easy to remember telephone number that connects callers to information about critical health and human services available in their community. It serves as a confidential resource for finding government benefits and services, nonprofit organizations, support groups, volunteer opportunities, donation programs, and other local resources.

Mass 211 is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Residents can contact the program toll free at (877) 211-6277 or search the Mass 211 Resource Locator here
