Port charity providing support for elderly women


The mission of the Newburyport Society for the Relief of Aged Women, a private, non-profit charitable foundation established in 1835, is to serve needy women, 60 years and older in the Newburyport area (Newburyport, Newbury, and Salisbury). These women have been Newburyport area residents for at least one year or former residents who were forced to relocate for financial or medical reasons. Priority is given to individual women who demonstrate indigent status or an acute financial need for assistance.

The Society utilizes all resources to serve identified elderly women in the Newburyport area, including grants to established agencies that provide services to this population. Therefore, the Society is grateful for the opportunities to serve through the Opportunity Works’ Aged Women Health and Wellness Program.

Opportunity Works is fully committed to enhancing the life for people with disabilities by promoting a culture of dignity and respect and ensuring individualized services that maximize the independence of the people it serves. It also resolves to eliminate the barriers that affect people with disabilities through community advocacy and education.

To schedule a tour of Opportunity Works, located on Opportunity Way in Newburyport’s industrial park, please call Deborah Andrews at 978-358-5803 or email
