Community Assistance Support
REVERE IS HERE FOR ALL OUR RESIDENTS
"Please Stay Home - Stay Safe"
The City of Revere's Wellness/Neighborhood Check Committee is implementing a “Resident Phone Call Buddy System.” We are asking our residents and volunteers to help us by reaching out to people that they know especially the Seniors and Disabled Residents to make sure they are fine. If you can ask your family and friends to also reach out that would be helpful and greatly appreciated.
We want to make sure we reach as many residents as possible to see if they have a need such as food or medication. If they do please have them contact Revere 311 or the State 211. The State 211 is available 24 hours a day 7 days a week in a multitude of languages. If they do not have a need now please let them know to keep those numbers handy.
DISABILITY COMMUNITY RESOURCES
For those of you who use PCAs, the “DPH Covid-19 Guide and Recommendations for In-Home Caregivers” is now posted on the PCA Council’s main organizational page. There is a section titled “2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) Updates for Consumers and PCAs.” Additional updates and guides will be posted as they become available to keep consumers and PCA workers informed.
Many non-profits and Independent Living Centers have reduced their office hours or have temporarily closed - but all should have a working phone line to reach staff which is working remotely.

Forms and Links
To the Residents of Revere,
The Commission on Disability will have an accessibility survey available for our residents to complete beginning in January 2018. The survey seeks to gather more information about the services or needs our residents may have or seek. It will be available to download online @ www.revere.org under the Disabilities department. A paper version will be available at City Hall in the Mayor’s Office at 281 Broadway and at our office in the Veteran’s Affairs Office at 249 R Broadway. Residents needing assistance completing the survey can also call the Disability Office at 781-286-8267. A member will be able to answer your questions or assist you in completing the survey. We encourage our Residents with disabilities to complete this survey as it will assist us in learning how to enhance our current programs and services.
