Every child deserves a Nurturing Father - a man who actively provides guidance, love, and support to enhance the development and growth of children for whom he cares.
The Home Project provides families and individuals in need with free non-furniture, gently used bedroom, bathroom, and kitchen items necessary to live with comfort and dignity.
The United Neighbors’ Cupboard is stocked with food that is shelf stable, nutritious, belly filling, and easy to prepare, as well as a variety of personal hygiene items, including menstruation products.
Who We Are
Supporting Children and Strengthening Families
United Neighbors of Fall River (UNFR) is one of twenty-two coalitions across the state of Massachusetts. We are dedicated to supporting children and strengthening families by coordinating resources already in the community and increasing neighborhood based activities that empower residents and build partnerships.
United Neighbors of Fall River Community Connections Coalition is committed to promoting a strong, healthy and safe community which will assist families in the promotion of peace and tranquility, optimum growth and development of our children and secure and stable family environments.
Peace projects are designed to help residents take an active role in preventing violence.
Our families projects help to create stable families and provide access to the things they need.
We believe in grass-roots organizing and collaboration to promote and strengthen the community.

We collect new personal hygiene products, canned goods, and gift cards for our Emergency Cupboard, as well as new and gently used household necessities for families transitioning from temporary to permanent housing as part of The Home Project.
