Today is our rainy day

These are difficult times for all, but a true hardship for those with mental illness. To our members, social distancing means disruption, anxiety, isolation and food insecurity. Please consider making a donation or ordering takeout to feed your family and keep our employees employed! 

MEALS THAT MATTER

Catering Options is doing our part to help essential workers during this difficult time. We are offering food options at a discounted price delivered free to their place of work. Meals are individually wrapped, and each order comes with free cookies. It's an easy way to say "thank you" to those saving lives!

LATEST NEWS

COVID-19 Update

In these most confusing and unprecedented times, I wanted to assure our partnering programs, our vendors and the individuals and families we serve of the efforts we are taking to help ensure the health of our members and our staff amid the COVID-19 crisis. Adhering to Governor Baker's guidelines, we have made the difficult decision to temporarily suspend programming on site and have instituted new policies and procedures to minimize the risk of infection. As our members are some of the most vulnerable population during this pandemic, it is critical that we remain vigilant in our mission to support each member in this time of uncertainty. With that said, we are thinking creatively and critically to address their needs. We have set up a COVID-19 hotline which will be responded to quickly by staff. We are preparing meals to be delivered to each member through "Deliver at Door" to minimize any risks to our staff. We are connecting through Facebook and Facebook live, text, phone calls, videos, mailings, emails, and Skype. We are committed to providing the best supports that we are able to those we serve. We will get through this together.


Sincerely,

Shannon Leary
Executive Director
