Neely House Information

The Neely House is closed temporarily in cooperation with global and local agencies efforts to halt the spread of COVID-19. We encourage you to check back in for further updates, and look forward to welcoming visitors back to the Neely House as soon as circumstances allow. If you need to contact someone at the Neely House directly please call: 617-636-0716.

We welcome guests back to The Neely House. With The Neely House now open again, each of us plays a role in a safe reopening, with social distancing, face masks, and additional health and safety precautions in place.
We have been thoughtfully preparing for our reopening, following the release of The Baker-Polito Administration’s comprehensive plan, which authorized public health facilities to open as of July 6, 2020. This has been a thorough process, one that considers many variables and takes into account State, City and CDC guidelines. We recognize that circumstances may change at any moment. But we remain hopeful that we will be able to serve our guests under the safest possible conditions and under new norms.
For more information on our safety protocols and guidelines, please contact your social worker or The Neely House directly: 617-636-0716.
