An AbilityFirst Update on COVID-19

 

Tuesday, March 24, 2020

 

Dear AbilityFirst Participant, Families or Caregivers:

Our hearts and thoughts are with you during these uncertain times and I would like to share my deepest gratitude and appreciation for all our AbilityFirst participants, families and staff.

With the new “Stay at Home” order issued for the state, we have closed all our programs starting March 20, 2020 except for our residential homes and job coaching for supported employees with critical job functions, such as at grocery stores.

Our programs will remain closed until at least April 20, 2020; however, we will be calling to check in on you and when possible support you through “remote” programming and support. You will hear more about this in the next several days.

We understand that these are uniquely challenging times for our community, and it requires some more thoughtful navigation. Please know that we are working hard to create a plan to continue to support our participants and families.

For questions about your program, please contact your Center Director at your center or program.

For ongoing AbilityFirst updates on the COVID-19, please check back to this webpage frequently.

Sincerely,

Lori Gangemi

Estimado Participante, Familia o Guardian:

Nuestros corazones y pensamientos están con ustedes durante estos tiempos inciertos y me gustaría compartir mi más profunda gratitud y aprecio por todos nuestros participantes, familias y personal de AbilityFirst.

Con la nueva orden “Stay at Home” emitida para el estado, hemos cerrado todos nuestros programas a partir del 20 de marzo de 2020, excepto nuestros hogares residenciales y el entrenamiento laboral para empleados con funciones de trabajo críticos, como en las tiendas de comestibles.

Nuestros programas permanecerán cerrados al menos hasta el 20 de abril de 2020; sin embargo, anunciaremos la posibilidad de la programación y el soporte a través de servicios “remotos”. Usted escuchará más sobre esto en los próximos días.

Entendemos que estos son momentos especialmente difíciles para nuestra comunidad, y requiere un poco de navegación más reflexiva. Por favor, sepa que estamos trabajando duro para crear un plan para continuar apoyando a nuestros participantes y familias.

Para preguntas sobre su programa, comuníquese con el Director del Centro programas
