Hey everyone! Carra here, prior to working at MRASP I worked with an amazing nonprofit called Advocates. Advocates serve many people across the state of Massachusetts with varying disabilities. I worked with the Brain Injury Day and Community Services program, which helps adult survivors in their communities as well as in their homes. For more information about Advocates brain injury services please follow this link. https://advocates.org/services/brain-injury
Unfortunately, Day and Community Services has been closed for several weeks. Just like you, others are at their homes unable to complete their daily routines. Most of the survivors of brain injury live in residential group homes. Group homes usually have about four adults with similar disabilities living together. In this time where many people are isolated in their rooms/homes. I thought it would be a great idea to write notes, create riddles, tell jokes, draw pictures or even create a word game for the Advocates community members. By sending a letter you will be putting a smile on someone’s face! Advocates also have inspirational staff members who are still going into work everyday and taking care of the daily needs for these participants. They are all true heros in my book. Families and children can also write thank you notes, thinking of you, thanks for your hard work letters to the staff members as well.
If you are interested, attached are a select few residential homes address:
Please write ATTN: Kindness letters to any you send.
Wilson Delino ATTN: Kindness Letters 333 Park Street, North Reading, 01864
Cyndi Janik ATTN: Kindness Letters 7 Oakland Street, Lexington, 02420
Amanda St. Amant ATTN: Kindness Letters 17 Warren Ave, Woburn, 01801
I hope the MRASP community can help me spread kindness during this difficult time
