Need-Based Services

Are you finding it hard to make ends meet?

For those who find themselves struggling financially and in need of some support, our office may be able to help. Following specific criteria, we are able to offer Southborough residents assistance through the following programs:

  • Holiday Giving Program
    This program provides support to families with school-age children in need during the holiday season through the donation of gifts from the surrounding community and local organizations and businesses.
  • Camperships
    Through the combined efforts of SYFS, the local community and affiliated camp programs, Southborough school-age youth are given the opportunity to attend camps during the summer.
  • Birthday Assistance
    Through the "Smiling Kids Program," Southborough families may acquire assistance with providing birthday gifts to their children to help make that day a special one.
  • Fuel Assistance
    Our office can facilitate the application process for SMOC of Framingham's fuel assistance program and can provide additional information on other energy assistance programs. Our department is an intake site for Southborough residents under the age of 60 years old. Residents 60 years and older can contact the Southborough Senior Center for help with fuel assistance.
