Samaritans of the Merrimack Valley

Family Services’ Samaritans of Merrimack Valley strives to reduce the incidence of suicide in the Merrimack Valley and throughout Massachusetts by providing “befriending” to individuals who are lonely, depressed and contemplating suicide or self-injury. Suicide prevention is one of the primary goals of the Samaritans, although services also include postvention services, trainings and seminars, and support groups.

AMIGOS Mentoring Program

Family Services’ Amigos program provides mentoring for Lawrence youth ages 11-15 who, at the time of enrollment, attend the Guilmette, Arlington or the RISE Academy. Mentors and mentees meet 3-4 times a month and spend 1.5 - 2 hours together each time. Training, support, quarterly events, and incentives are provided to participants. The goal of the program is to prevent gang involvement by providing youth with an adult role model who forms a consistent and positive relationship with their youth mentee.
