About Us


For the last 106 years, the Social Service League of Cohasset  (SSL) has been working to enhance the lives of those less fortunate. The SSL is an all-volunteer, philanthropic organization which is governed by a 7 member board of directors.

Over the years, the generosity of the Cohasset community has enabled us to help feed Cohasset’s hungry, offer a warm meal, gifts and friendly conversation to seniors alone over the holidays, award scholarships to outstanding and needy high school seniors while helping students without means attend camps and school trips. Community donations have funded prevention education programs for parents and students, provided emergency funds to repair roofs, cars, replaced heating systems and paid unexpected dental, hearing aid and health bills for struggling seniors.  Seniors want to age in place and be part of a vibrant senior community like the one the SSL built at Willcutt Commons.  Your contributions have also provided individual air conditioners, refrigerators, generators, new flooring and enabled the remodeling of the communal living room in our senior housing complex at 60 Elm St. To support seniors ageing in place, your donations help finance safety and convenience modifications in their homes.  We appreciate the trust you have placed in us to make the right investments to help the Cohasset community.


Our Mission

Founded in 1912, and incorporated in 1946, the mission of the Social Service League of Cohasset, an all-volunteer organization, is to identify and assist those in need from all age groups within our community. We focus on actions that support Cohasset citizens to make us a stronger, more inclusive and vibrant community. Our goal is to create, develop and support programs that directly benefit those in need. We accomplish our objectives by funding educational, social, and health programs that we deem will deliver a positive and measureable impact to our community.
