"Dedicated to providing year-round programs
and educational support to enrich the lives of children in need."

 Questions to Think About

When unemployment threatens to spoil the Christmas holidays, who will ensure there are gifts under the tree? When a child has witnessed a traumatic event, what will bring him comfort?

The answers all begin with our community:  YOU!  Our donors send thousands of gifts to our community’s children each year as a part of Christmas is for KidsTM. Local organizations make make it possible for children to hug new teddy bears through Bears on Board.

 Our History

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.



 Would  you like to join us?

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 that are looking for projects that benefit children should contact us to see how we  can help your organization.
