South Shore Community Action Council, Inc. - or SSCAC to those who know and love us! - is a 501(c)(3), private non-profit community action agency located in historic Plymouth, MA. 

Founded in 1965 under the Economic Opportunity Act, we remain steadfast and true to our mission of providing opportunities to help low-income individuals and families attain the skills and supports they need to overcome poverty and make a better life for themselves and their children.

Each year, we serve over 27,000 low income people of all ages, primarily from the South Shore towns of Carver, Duxbury, Hanover, Hull, Kingston, Marshfield, Norwell, Pembroke, Plymouth, Plympton, and Scituate. However, through our Home Energy Assistance, Transportation, and Early Education programs, our service reach extends to another 70 cities and towns on the South Shore, South Coast, Cape Cod, and the Islands.

We employ nearly 200 people across 9 locations in southeastern MA. Our services include:

  • South Shore Early Education (with centers in Plymouth, Marshfield, Wareham, Hyannis, West Yarmouth, and Dennisport)
  • Home Energy Assistance and Conservation
  • Transportation
