The Nemasket Group is a Southcoast treasure, serving the needs of developmentally disabled adults for many years. First headquartered in Fairhaven, and now located in Mattapoisett, the Nemasket group has been an important partner, supporting their clients and their families, working to better their lives by developing job opportunities and other activities. Next month, Nemasket will host their annual Five K Walk and Run, raising money for their programs. Organizer Heidi Pina-Barnes and Director of Building Futures, Ross Hooley join Jim Phillips on Townsquare Sunday this week to talk about the Walk and Run, and the on-going work of the organization.
