To all community members and stakeholders, our COVID 19 response: Due to the Governor’s State of Emergency, all of our centers will be closed until further notice. The social distancing order although extremely important, would be better stated as physical distancing as we will remain a community providing social interaction and support virtually. We’ll do this through daily Facebook posts, use of Zoom meetings, texting and other platforms as they are available. We want to do our part to support the public health efforts. Many feel lost and we continue to talk about that and remind each other that we still have purpose. We encourage you to limit unnecessary activity during this time.  We will update our website regularly as things change. We’re also looking for the community’s voice around receiving peer support.

Please send your suggestions to:




“Every single act and every single act of distancing has purpose.”

 Governor Charlie Baker
