SBNH Participants and Families,
Due to the COVID-19 Virus and based on the guidelines coming from the State of MA, the City of Boston, public healthcare providers and the CDC, South Boston Neighborhood House will remain closed through Monday, May 4th. We will continue to reassess our return date as new information becomes available.
A decision to close SBNH for any period is extremely difficult to make. However, public health is our number one concern. We need to be supporting smart decisions for our community and that includes closing our programs and offices.
We will continue our “Ollie Calls Program’ designed to regularly check in with our seniors and families during this time. This will allow us to respond to any immediate needs and connect folks to available resources. We are also delivering weekday meals to seniors and coordinating Emergency Food distribution on Friday evenings – if this would be helpful to you or your family, please reach out to Kathy Lafferty @ firstname.lastname@example.org or 617-268-1619 x201.
As the situation evolves, we will continue to evaluate what is best for SBNH, our participants and our staff and maintain an open line of communication with you. I encourage you to reach out to us regarding any questions you have.
