Advocates 2020 Annual Report

We will never forget the year 2020. So many challenges. So many people struggling. So much loss. And yet, I choose to remember the good. Neighbors clapping for healthcare workers heading to work. People staying home to “flatten the curve.” Essential workers, like grocery store employees, going to work so community members could get the food and supplies they needed.

Life Skills & Learning Center Spring Update

As spring begins, we are reflecting on the challenges we overcame in the early months of 2022. Day Services experienced a significant COVID-19 surge that affected 50% of our staff, and we monitored 75 individuals for exposures. Our amazing and committed staff overcame these challenges with all the necessary tools and resources in place. We recently welcomed back 16 more friends to the program! With one cohort left, we are excited to get back into the swing of things.
