We are pleased to announce that The Nemasket Group has moved our offices to The Pines in Mattapoisett.
Our new address is 109 Fairhaven Road, Mattapoisett, MA 02739.
Our phone and fax numbers remain the same.
The organization resided at the former Job C. Tripp School in Fairhaven for over 32 years. The old school building served The Nemasket Group well for many years. However, over the past few years a number of significant concerns with the long-term structural integrity of the building have arisen. Considering these concerns and the potential accompanying financial implications, coupled with the organizations need for more training, office, and meeting space, The Nemasket Group made the decision to begin the search for a new location.
We want to thank the town of Fairhaven and its residents for welcoming The Nemasket Group and our extended family into the community. Though our offices are no longer located in Fairhaven, The Nemasket Group still considers itself a part of the Fairhaven community, as some of the individuals we provide services to, as well as employees of the organization continue to reside in this lovely seaside town.
