Mission Statement

The Nemasket Group, Inc. offers personalized, flexible support to families and individuals with disabilities to live, work and develop relationships within our communities. We recognize that people are the experts on their own lives and that our role is to listen and walk together on the journey toward the realization of power, community membership and self-determination.

Description

Our story began in 1984 when a group of families came together and made a decision. They wanted their sons and daughters to have a future - a future that included working and participating in everyday community life. The Nemasket Group was born from that idea and a lot of effort from families, friends, local officials and other state agencies. There were 19 individuals when we first opened our doors and today, we support nearly 125 men and women from the Greater New Bedford and Wareham areas to develop career goals and gain employment in our Job Paths Program. Most are working in local businesses and companies in a variety of jobs including landscaping, medical support services, banking, industrial manufacturing, materials handling and food services. People are earning wages, paying taxes and leading typical lives.

We have grown and evolved through the years and have added programs to meet the needs of families and individuals living with disabilities throughout Greater New Bedford. We now serve over 400 adults, children and families.
