Lending a Helping Hand to Our Neighbors

We believe in providing a hand-up, knowing that sometimes the littlest things can make the biggest difference. 


The Friends provide limited support to Roxbury Social Services clients beyond what is allowed by the Public Assistance Trust on a case by case basis. The Director of Roxbury Social Services screens and selects each recipient of Friends funds. The Friends also provide financial support via the gift & gas card program and the Food Pantry.

How to Help

One person can truly make a difference. Whether it's time spent volunteering at a special event or program, or making a financial donation, every contribution counts -- big or small.


Please take a moment to review our volunteer and giving opportunities.
