Services & Resources for Residents
Fenway CDC will continue to provide quality services to our residents from Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm. If you need assistance or have an emergency matter, please contact Fenway CDC staff: contact list here.
As we continue to live through this difficult time, Fenway CDC encourages our community residents to stay strong, positive, and unified. In the spirit of keeping our community connected, we have created a community sign for residents to color and place in the windows of their homes and cars and on mailboxes. This is a symbol of our united efforts to protect each other during the COVID-19 pandemic. Download the sign here. See our sample here.
