Dear Aldea family,

I wanted to reach out to you all on the ever changing Coronavirus outbreak. Things are rapidly changing and we are in communication with all of our community partners and assessing what is best for our staff, clients, and families. We are also wondering how you are doing and coping at this time?
Overall, we want to share with you Aldea’s overarching principals as we move forward. We aim to:

Keep all of our offices closed at minimum until March 30th to limit exposure and spread of the Coronavirus.

Conduct most of our services over the telephone and/or video conferencing (telehealth) to support youth and families as much as possible. Face to face visits with youth and or/families are discouraged. If staff do meet with their clients they are encouraged to meet with them outside (open air) if possible and maintain proper distancing (6 feet).

As we manage through these unprecedented times, please be kind to yourself and others.

We will show up each day to ensure the most vulnerable in our community are supported.

Best regards,
Kerry Ahearn, LCSW
Chief Executive Officer
As you know, because our fundraiser on May 1 had to be postponed, we are behind in the donations we need to provide the critical services we do to the community.
Benevity is an organization working with Google. They are offering to match any donations up to $300,000 for all their nonprofit partners like Aldea.

We know everyone is being impacted in some way by this outbreak.

If you are in a position to donate even $10, that gives us $20 of gas money for our Non Minor Dependents age 18-21 who live in our Transitional Housing Program. Most have lost their jobs as they work in the hospitality industry. We are their safety net! 
Please take advantage of this match opportunity and forward this email to your network for support.
Thank you for all you do to meet Aldea's needs!
