Our unique approach relies on a team of volunteers, donors and community partners to deliver compassionate, client-centered programs focused on hunger, mental health and emergency assistance. Interfaith Social Services is a nonreligious organization, but its roots were established by a local faith community. In 1947, religious leaders from the city of Quincy, Massachusetts, were struggling with the question of how to help poverty-stricken families in the area.

Our volunteers commit to a 3-hour weekly shift in a variety of different roles. We also welcome corporate volunteer groups and community groups looking for one-day volunteer opportunities. These can be great team-building experiences for your employees while they also get to give back to their community.
