Celebrating over 100 years of serving the Wellesley community!
The mission of the Wellesley Friendly Aid Association, a community-based, non-profit organization, is to improve the well-being and quality of life of the residents of Wellesley, Massachusetts. Through its evolving range of programs and services, made available both directly and in collaboration with other organizations and agencies, Wellesley Friendly Aid offers assistance to Wellesley individuals and families of all incomes and ages who have a variety of unmet needs.
Although Wellesley has a reputation as an affluent town, reality can be quite different for some of our neighbors. While our programs are open to all residents, many of our services focus on helping families living at or near poverty levels. Most live in public housing.
► Wellesley Friendly Aid is an action-oriented charity established in 1899.
► All of our programs are funded by donations.
► With the exception of a part-time Program Administrator, all of our programs are run by community volunteers.
► Please contact us about accessing programs & services.
