for the Relief
of Aged Women
A PRIVATE NON-PROFIT CHARITABLE FOUNDATION ESTABLISHED IN 1835
The mission of the Newburyport Society for the Relief of Aged Women is to serve women in need who are 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. NSRAW prioritizes women who have limited assets and demonstrate an urgent need for financial assistance.
YOU ARE NOT ALONE.
It is not uncommon for local women aged 60 and older to find themselves in occasional financial difficulty. Many older women are one emergency away from the urgent need for financial assistance - the very assistance it is NSRAW's mission to provide. The Society will utilize all resources to serve identified women in the Newburyport area, including collaborative efforts with established agencies that provide such services.
