WHO WE SERVE

The Boys & Girls Club of Marshfield currently serves youth, ages 6-18 years old and serves as a second home to many children of working parents. The Club’s primary focus is to keep children safe and engaged during the after-school hours. This is the most vulnerable time for latch-key kids. Although the Club’s primary population is Marshfield residents, the expansion of our physical space to a new building has allowed us to expand our reach and offer resources to the greater South Shore community.

The Boys & Girls Club of Marshfield currently has 500 families as members of the club. Of these families, 40% are low to moderate income families that do not have adequate child care during the most vulnerable time of day for latch key kids. In addition, our inclusion program which services kids with special needs including social, learning disabilities, emotional, mental and physically challenged, represent 55% of the children served.
