Seafarer's Friend extends the ministry of the churches to meet the unmet spiritual, social and emotional needs in the New England Maritime community.

Donating is another great way to get involved with our ministry. Whether it be donating your time, essential items the seafarers may need, like soap and winter clothes, or even a financial donation.
