We Find It"
Born in 1972 and funded by the newly created state Office for
Children, the Attleboro Area Council for Children has made its mission to
fill children's needs in our community. When state funds dried up in
1991, the Council decided to "go it alone" and incorporate as a non-profit
and run all its programs with volunteers.

The Attleboro Area Council for Children serves as volunteer advocates for
children. Where there is a need for service we attempt to find one. Volunteers
are always needed to make the work lighter. Sometimes, community members come
to the Council because they have discovered that there is a serious gap in a
service for children and families. The Council helps concerned groups find a
way to make a difference in a child’s life.
If you live or work in the Attleboro, North Attleboro, Mansfield, Norton,
Rehoboth, or Seekonk - you can join us! We encourage families and children to
volunteer together on some of our special projects. Clubs and organizations
looking for projects that benefit children should contact us to see how we can
help your organization.
