Community Check-In

We’re in this together! So we’ve been asking neighbors from across the Beacon Hill residential community to answer four questions just to check in with one another. We would love to hear from you too! Please email your answers to: Maira Pizano


  1. How are you feeling about everything that’s been happening recently with the Coronavirus?
  2. What are you doing differently as part of your daily routine?
  3. What words of encouragement can you offer your fellow neighbors and friends?
  4. How can we help support each other?
