South Boston Neighborhood Aid

A group of South Boston non-profit organization have organized a new group called South Boston Neighborhood Aid Network.

“In these fast moving and uncertain times, it’s important that we show up for each other and remember that we are not alone.” 

This Neighborhood Aid Network is a powerful way to build strong connections. We all have something to offer and we all have something we need.  Here’s what they come up with so far! 

Resource List

A centralized place for individuals, families, service providers and others to find information. You can check it out here! 

Current Offerings List 

Fill out this form to offer support to your neighbors.

The info you provide will be directly uploaded into a public non-editable “offerings” spreadsheet that others can view and reach out to you directly for support.

If you have a need that appears on this sheet, go ahead and reach out to the person listed. 

If you appear on the sheet and need to be edited, email SBNeighborhoodAid@gmail.com to cross out your name so that you aren’t receiving more asks. 

Current Needs List

If you are in need of something that is not found on the Current Offerings list, you can add yourself to this editable list here! There is no ask that is too big and no one will ever be shamed for asking for what they need. 

If you’d prefer to not add your name + contact information on this public spreadsheet, email us at SBNeighborhoodAid@gmail.com or leave a message on the hotline with your request and we can add it to the sheet for you anonymously.

Facebook Page

For sharing new information as it becomes available, and to direct people to the South Boston Neighborhood Aid Network resources. You can check out the page here! 

Hotline: 617-286-2463

A number for those who prefer to call or text. Offerings, needs, and information shared to the hotline will be added to other lists.

Help us build

These resources are only useful if we can make people aware of them, and keep them maintained. You can help:

Spreading the word 

We need to spread the word about what we’re doing in concise and clear ways to ALL parts of South Boston. You can:

  • Help us make and distribute flyers 
  • spread the word online
  • reach out to other friends 

Translations/Language Justice  

Please reach out if you have capacity to translate some of our materials.

Tell us what’s missing 

What information are you looking for that isn’t here? Send questions and ideas, or share links/notices that we should include to SBNeighborhoodAid@gmail.com.
