Mission Statement

Our mission is to eliminate poverty along the South Shore in partnership with individuals, organizations, and businesses that want to make a powerful impact on the lives of their less fortunate neighbors. Typically, our partners are worried about children going to bed hungry and falling behind their peers, concerned about their elderly neighbors who have to choose between heat and prescriptions, or are frustrated for working families that can't earn a living wage to afford the high cost of living on the South Shore.

Description

Each year, SSCAC improves the quality of life for nearly 20,000 people of all ages living on the South Shore, Cape Cod, and the Islands. We run programs in the areas of youth and family development, income maximization, nutrition and food assistance, emergency assistance, fuel and energy assistance, employment, and transportation for the elderly and disabled. In addition to our main office located in Plymouth, SSCAC operates 2 South Shore Early Education sites (Plymouth, Marshfield), 2 additional Fuel Assistance intake offices (Hyannis, Martha's Vineyard), and our Food Distribution Center (Plymouth). SSCAC’s active and engaged Board of Directors is entirely composed of residents of our primary service area, which includes the following South Shore towns: Carver, Duxbury, Hanover, Hull, Kingston, Marshfield, Norwell, Pembroke, Plymouth, Plympton, and Scituate.
