UPCOMING EVENT

Join us on June 4th at 6:30 at the Newton Free Library for a community art project to help raise awareness for mental health and suicide prevention. Place your piece in our mosaic, enjoy our music and food, enter to win free raffle prizes, and help support our community of caring. Artist Emily Bhargava will lend her creative talents to help us create a mosaic to be hung outside the Health and Human Services Department at Newton City Hall. Come be a part of our community of caring.

The division of Social Services works to serve the City of Newton by providing case management, guidance, outreach and prevention to Newton residents.
