hope you and your loved ones are healthy and safe amidst the ongoing COVID-19 crisis. None of us could have ever imagined how this global pandemic would alter our lives. Yet, despite our own personal and professional challenges, Family Centers’ team has stepped up in a major way to provide the comfort, support, guidance and reassurance our community needs right now.
Most of our programs continue to operate virtually, including telehealth accessibility for medical and mental health patients. Home visitation, bereavement groups, vocational counseling and ESL classes are also being held through Zoom and other videoconferencing platforms. Our Family Centers Health Care clinic and Stamford CARES teams remain onsite each day to deliver important medical and case management services.
Although we’ve largely adapted to a “transitional normal” of a virtual environment, the absence of human interaction is something very hard to get used to. We miss all of our families, donors, volunteers and supporters, and we look forward to the day when we can be together again in person.
In the meantime, Family Centers is doing everything we can to meet our community's needs during these challenging times. We will get through this together, and I'm sure brighter days are ahead.
