Welcome to Marblehead Female Humane Society, Marblehead’s Oldest Charitable Organization

Our Mission

For over 200 years, Marblehead Female Humane Society has remained faithful to its original mission of quietly and respectfully helping Marblehead residents in need.

If you’re struggling to pay your bills or are experiencing a sudden and unexpected financial hardship, we’re here to help. Individual requests for financial assistance must be referred through a third party. We urge you to contact our partners at the Marblehead Counseling Center, the Marblehead Housing Authority, the Council on Aging and the Food Pantry, or speak to your local clergy.
