Meg Quirke, Family Resource Coordinator

My goal is to engage and serve the families of Middleborough who want to become informed about local resources and connected with local providers.

I work to establish and maintain relationships with community partners in order to share accurate information about the services available to MPS families.

If interested in learning more, don't hesitate to call or send an email.
