 Our Mission

Those Who Can for Those In Need, Inc., is a Winthrop-based non-profit linking the North Shore Community with Resources and Volunteer Opportunities in the areas of Elderly, Losing a Loved One, Children, Low-Income, and Homelessness.

In The Spotlight
Each issue of our newsletter will feature a local organization serving our community!
Housing Families works to end family homelessness. We provide safe, temporary shelter and quality affordable housing to homeless and at-risk families. We offer individualized supportive services to enrich children's lives, nurture the potential of each family member, and help families maintain permanent housing. www.housingfamilies.org 

In addition, we are always in need of cleaning supplies for our families ; dish detergent, windex, paper towels, bathroom cleaner, etc.

Volunteer Opportunities

My Brother's Table located in Lynn is always accepting volunteers.  Great for families, community service hours or for anyone.  Please call 781-595-3224 for information.  www.mybrotherstable.org.


Children's Friend and Family Services seeks volunteer mentors ages 21 and older to be matched with one youth mentee from the North Shore. Youth are between the ages of 5 and 18, and as a mentor you would meet every week for at least two hours to establish a one-to-one relationship that over a year’s time matures into a genuine, caring friendship. Our mentors – like the individuals and families we serve – come from a variety of backgrounds and professions. Whether it’s taking a walk in the park, watching a movie, cooking or just talking on the phone – when you take time out of your day to enrich the life of a child, you’re making a real difference. Our current program waitlist has 29 youth, there is a significant need! If you are interested or would like to know more, please visit http://childrensfriend.net/services/youth-mentoring/ or contact Samantha Alves, Director of Youth Mentoring at salves@childrensfriend.net or call 978-219- 1528.
