If you are a Marshfield resident in need of a helping hand, we are here to help guide you. The first step in regaining stability and achievable success sometimes seems the hardest: You need to ask for help.
Our volunteers compassionately open their hearts, minds, and resource network to help you navigate some of life’s hurdles. Many people need a hand at some point. Some volunteers have been helped by friends or organizations in the past. They understand the hurdle you overcome when asking for help and guidance. Frequently, people are most surprised by the trusting relationships that are formed with Sowing Seeds volunteers.
All conversations are kept in complete confidence.
Our volunteers admire you for your courage to step forward. When you call Sowing Seeds you will be treated with dignity and respect.
The first step, however, must be yours. Our services are available to you only after you have made a call to us to meet with an intake volunteer. Although you can leave us a message throughout the day and night, it will take some time for a specialized volunteer to return your call. Remember, for emergencies: always dial 911. To meet with Sowing Seeds call: 781.837.3337.
If you are in need of clothing or school supplies visit our Clothing Bank, where we distribute clothes on Thursday and Saturday mornings, from 10 am to 12 noon. We are located at 974 Plain Street, at the corner of School Street and Route 139 in the white church (formerly the First Baptist Church of Marshfield).
