[ARCHIVED] Malden Cares Resumes Malden MBTA Station

Malden Cares

With the end of the Warming Center Winter Program approaching, Mayor Gary Christenson is pleased to announce that the “Malden Cares Street Team” will once again be back at the Malden MBTA Station Monday through Friday from 4-7 PM beginning Monday, April 4th. For the entire month of April, the coaches will be working out of the Malden Public Schools Food Truck. Beginning Monday, May 2nd, Malden Cares will be at the MBTA Station 7 days a week, Monday through Friday, 4-7 PM and Saturday and Sunday 10 AM-1 PM.

The Malden Cares Pilot Program which successfully debuted last year has been funded for two full years. Recovery Coaches will be on site with the goal of engaging residents to help provide outreach, education, recovery services, and support for substance use disorder as well as assistance with food insecurity and homelessness. There will be a resource table, and snacks, water and printed materials will be provided. 

In an effort to bring these vital services to more people in other areas of the City, one night a week a few members of the Malden Cares Street Team will set up in a different location around the City offering the same services. This is an effort to bring these services to more people in need. During the months of July and August, “slush nights” will be held two nights a month in a location to be determined and free slush will be handed out to residents.

Members of the Malden Cares Initiative, Malden Overcoming Addiction and the Opioid Task Force led by Addiction Recovery Resource Specialist Paul Hammersley and Certified Addiction Recovery Coach and Supervisor Dawna Aiello are leading the efforts.

For more information on Malden Cares or Malden Overcoming Addiction please contact Malden’s Recovery Resource Specialist Paul Hammersley at 781-838-2203.
