WHAT WE ARE DOING TO FLATTEN THE CURVE:

Like the rest of our community, we are concerned about slowing the spread of COVID-19 and making sure that we adhere to the recommendations of our health authorities and government leaders. To that end, all staff who interface with the public are wearing protective masks and gloves. All other staff who can work from home are doing so. Our IT and Operations teams worked quickly to get everyone equipped, so there would be a seamless transfer to remote working. Special accommodations have been made for staff with children home from school. We are committed to protecting our clients, but just as invested in making sure that the people who work for us feel supported during this rapidly changing environment.

WHAT YOU CAN DO:

If there is a silver lining, it is this: We, as a community, can now easily see where the vulnerabilities lie. We can see plainly that the risk of illness and the ability to recover depends largely on a person’s race, income, access to health care, and immigration status. More than ever, this pandemic shows that investments in our safety net systems and community-based solutions matter. Worker and renter protections matter. The message is becoming clearer to us all: Injustice is not only morally wrong — it threatens the health and safety of our entire society.

The choices we make now can have a huge and heroic impact on the wellbeing of others. If we can stay in place, we should. If we can give, we should. We can show what we’re made of – and it is my enduring belief that we are made of goodness, kindness, and a willingness to help those who need it.

Now, more than ever, your support will allow us to continue this vital work.
