Newburyport Society for the Relief of Aged Women


  • Overview of Organization and Services:
    The mission of the Newburyport Society for the Relief of Aged Women is to serve needy women sixty years and older. We are a private not-for-profit foundation established in 1835 and formally incorporated in 1839.

    Women who are designated Newburyport area residents for at least one year, or are former Newburyport residents who were forced to relocate for financial or medical reasons are considered for aid. Priority will be given to women who demonstrate indigent status or acute need for assistance. The Society will utilize all resources to serve identified elderly women in the Newburyport area, including collaborative efforts with established agencies that provide such services.
