SCES is Open We are here for you. Most of our employees are now working remotely. If you have a question, please call your case manager or call our main number 617.628.2601.

Nutrition We remain committed to providing home delivered meals to those who need them.   We have added many new clients to meet new needs. While our ethnic and vegetarian meals are still being delivered hot, our standard meals are now being delivered frozen. If you would like to receive daily deliveries, or have any additional needs, please call your case manager.

SCES Calling Our staff have enjoyed many good conversations when we have called to check in with you. These calls have also helped us to identify a need for regular friendly phone calls for those who feel isolated.

In-Home Services During this statewide surge in the numbers of people with Coronavirus, you may want to put non-essential services, such as housekeeping or laundry, on hold. Please contact your case manager if you would like to make a change in your services.
