Our mission is to ease stress, reduce hunger and improve the quality of life for our neighbors in need. The Falmouth Service Center (FSC) works to increase self-sufficiency by helping to build networks among clients, neighbors and agencies.
Storm Closure Information
Due to the impending storm, the Falmouth Service Center will be CLOSING TODAY @ 4 p.m. and we will be CLOSED tomorrow. The safety of our volunteers and clients is of utmost importance to us. At this point we are unsure about Wednesday and it will depend on the length and severity of the storm. We will have a message on this page, on our phone message, and on Facebook and Twitter, as having power allows posting. Please stay safe!
Emerald House Updates for 2015
The Emerald House Thrift Shop is currently accepting winter clothing, linens, and small household items. We do not accept electric and electronic items or exercise equipment. We will accept Christmas decorations until January 31.
Currently we have resumed taking donations of food, winter clothing and small household items. We are not taking any medical equipment at this time except for wheelchairs and shower chairs. You can bring donations during our open hours.
The first snowflakes have fallen already! Do you need help with high heat bills? It doesn't matter if you heat with oil, gas, or electric heat, there is help available through the Fuel Assistance Program for those low-income households that are the most vulnerable to the high home heating costs many face in the New England area. Click here for more information on the program or call us at 508-548-2794 to schedule your appointment.
We can help you with your recertification application or a new application.

We’re Here to Help
There are people in Falmouth who cannot always afford to buy food, or to heat their home during the winter. There are people who live for days or weeks at a time with no electricity because they've fallen behind on their bills.
- The cafeteria worker at your child's school who is a single parent
- The checkers and baggers at your local grocery and retail store
- The teacher assistant in your child's day care center
- Your neighbor down the street who has been laid off and is having trouble meeting his/her mortgage payment
- The elderly woman/man on a fixed income who lives across the street
- Your next door neighbor whose husband left her with three small children
- The families who have chronically ill children, or are themselves struggling with incapacitating illness
- The man or woman who drives your child's school bus
You or someone you love may have the need for assistance within the year. You can never know what will happen, but it's good to know we're here to help.
With over 400 volunteers, the campus is truly a place
where Falmouth residents can be of service, and in turn,
can come if they are in need of service.
