We are a Community Action Agency
Self Help, Inc. is a nonprofit Community Action Agency (CAA) created to help low-income families and individuals stabilize and secure their lives through education, strategic assistance, and building on opportunities in their communities. We provide a range of services for families and households across Southeastern Massachusetts.
Want your children to be better prepared for school? Is someone in your home struggling with addiction? Need help keeping your family warm this winter? Need help finding a job? Self Help, Inc. can help you today, and help you help yourself better tomorrow.
The mission of Self Help, Inc. is to reduce poverty, increase self-sufficiency and improve the community by providing resources for people to create healthier, better lives and achieve their full potential.
We envision our service area to be a place where all people become self-sufficient and have equal opportunity to reach their full social, civic, and economic potential.
All of the services we provide, both home based and community based, are developed to support the Strengthening Families approach. Hear from some of our members that shared their experiences with us:
