Social services are a vital source of economic security in the community. While not every person has a need for these services, it is important that residents understand what resources are available and how to access them if needed.
Regrettably, awareness of social services is made difficult by the large number of public and private agencies that provide them. Residents who cannot find the support they need struggle unfairly.
The Town of Weymouth has developed a Social Services Reference Guide to assist residents locate community programs that provide essential health and human services. This guide summarizes a variety of programs that are available in and around Weymouth, and offers contact information for local providers as well as general information on the eligibility and scope of assistance they offer.
This reference 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 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.
