How you help Every day volunteers help us deliver access programs such as Meals on Wheels, homemaking services, and personal care attendants that allow elders in our area to continue living at home, independently.
About us Coastline is a nonprofit organization that has been serving communities in the Greater New Bedford region for more than 40 years. Coastline works closely with social and home health agencies in the community to identify gaps in services and to develop the capacity to provide needed programs and services to older adults and others who reside in the service area. Some of these services are provided directly by Coastline; however, most services are provided by agencies in the community under contracts and grants awarded by Coastline, with funding that comes primarily from the Massachusetts Executive Office of Elder Affairs.
