Mission Statement

Interfaith Social Services' mission is to strengthen family life and offer assistance to anyone in need in the South Shore area.

Description

Interfaith Social Services is a nonreligious 501(c)(3) organization serving the disadvantaged on Massachusetts’ South Shore since 1947. Our organization offers a variety of services to assist our clients in their ascent out of poverty. Last year ISS volunteers distributed over 430,000 lbs of food to needy families and individuals. Food is the necessity that brings people to our doors, in turn they learn about our other programs like The New Directions Counseling Center. The Center is structured around a sliding fee scale, thus ensuring that anyone who needs help can get it regardless of income. Clients learn about HomeSafe, a homelessness prevention and emergency assistance program. They can get a few free outfits to wear to job interviews in our Career Closet. Or they can shop for low cost clothing and household goods at our Bureau Drawer Thrift Shop. ISS is the only comprehensive service agency on the South Shore.
