Moving

We Are Moving Our Office

Our new location on Main Street in downtown Fitchburg is being renovated.  It is our desire to serve North Central Massachusetts with care and compassion in a warm, inviting atmosphere.  This will take some time.  If you need someone to talk to during our time of transition you may call our 24/7 option line: 1-800-712-HELP.  Our “Grand Opening” will happen sometime in the fall of 2011.  As we approach completion, we will post the date on this webpage.  The year 2011 marks our 35th year of service in the community.

Respectfully,
Gail Gardner
Executive Director
