A ministry of First Parish for the past 4 years The Matthew Mission has continued to grow and expand and find new ways to take care of our homeless population and to help those in need.
The Matthew Mission assists the homeless and other individuals in need by connecting them with social service agencies that can best serve them. We make referrals to those agencies and guide individuals through the application process, intake and admittance into programs such as shelter, rehabilitation, GED courses, job training, Social Security and MassHealth. We also provide Blessing Bags, consisting of hygiene items, food, socks, gloves, first aid kits, etc, blankets, tents, sleeping bags, winter coats, hats, gloves, hand & body warmers to our homeless brothers and sisters.
Our Outreach Center is open to everyone in need. It serves as a warming center in the winter months. We offer free and confidential HIV/STD testing provided by an outside agency. We offer classes and have a small coffee shop.
