Friends of the Homeless of the South Shore is dedicated to helping homeless families by providing food, clothing, furniture, shelter, education, and advocacy. They address a whole range of needs, from physical to emotional, from personal to social, and from psychological to spiritual.
Volunteers are used in all aspects of the program. They encourage individuals and groups from our area and abroad to be involved with their staff and families. They encourage weekly enrichment programs for adults and children and therefore have need of skilled tradesmen and leaders as well as unskilled helpers. Volunteers regularly come from grade schools, high schools, colleges, civic and religious organizations and businesses, and work with us just once, once a week. or every day.
North River teens have done yard cleanup for the Friends of the Homeless shelters. We have provided drivers, collected supplies for residents of the shelter and completed large-scale projects for them.
