Happy Children At A Table

For Children

To our Children & Families and our many Community Partners,

In order to support efforts to contain the spread of COVID-19 and to ensure the health and safety of our enrolled children/families, staff and partners, our direct service operations will remain closed through April 26, 2020, pending any further situation updates. Following the Center for Disease Control guidance, adhering to strict social distancing is in the overall best health interest of our communities.

We realize the unplanned and extended closures cause disruption for everyone. We have been so pleased with the active response to telecommunications as together staff and families maintain regular communication to support distance learning for children and multiple supports for families. Please continue to express your needs to our dedicated staff and together we will work through this unprecedented and challenging time.

Take Care and Be Well,
