A Message to MHSA Supporters

I want to assure you that all of our programs continue to safely serve 1,000 people in need of our support each day.  The safety measures we have had in place for almost a year now have proven effective and the rate of COVID-19 infection among our clients and staff remains low.  We deeply appreciate the support of everyone who came forward in recent months to help us meet needs no one expected. 

MHSA will continue to do all we can to meet the needs of those who struggle to afford adequate healthy food, those who have lost their home and need help to find permanent housing, and those who are ready to recover from an addiction and rebuild their lives.

With deep appreciation,

Bob Mills, CEO

New Grab & Go Meals!

In order to ensure that we meet the needs of those who rely on the MHSA Bristol Lodge Soup Kitchen located at 545 Moody St. for nutritious meals while minimizing the risk of spreading the Coronavirus (COVID-19), we will be providing meals on a takeout basis only until further notice.  Takeout meals will be available Monday-Friday between 4:30 pm and 5:30pm.  All are welcome.  We kindly request that people who receive takeout food help keep the neighborhood clean and properly dispose of all trash. We appreciate your ongoing support and understanding.
