Our response to the COVID-19 pandemic

Our residential staff have been paramount in keeping our clients healthy and safe throughout the pandemic.  To date, we have had no clients or staff members test positive for COVID-19 in our residential programs.  The hard work and dedication of our staff who have worked tirelessly throughout; many of them spending time away from their own families and working long hours to ensure we could support each and every one of our individuals.  They have been flexible in the ever-changing policies and regulations as we navigate to through unchartered territory.  We are appreciative of everyone who assisted our residential programs, especially day program staff.  It has and will continue to be a collaborative effort!
