Via Hosts Vaccine Clinic for Residential Provider

The Pennsylvania Office of Development Programs (ODP) asked for agency volunteers to host COVID-19 vaccination clinics for residential providers when the vaccine became available. Via volunteered to be a host agency and was honored to help individuals in our community gain access to the COVID-19 vaccine and be part of the larger solution to this worldwide pandemic.

Via participant Paul lives in a residential provider home and was thrilled to receive his vaccine at Via. He is pictured with Via Community Coach Alex who was recently vaccinated.
Via Welcomes Back Participants
The COVID-19 crisis has presented many challenges and Via has continued to adapt to address these challenges. When the number of COVID-19 cases increased in December, we closed our facility-based services, but continued to provide in-person services in the community following CDC-recommended health and safety guidelines. We also continued providing services virtually. Since mid-February, we have welcomed back participants to facility-based services and close to 50% of participants have returned with more people coming back every week.
Everyone is continuing to wear masks, socially distance and practice hand hygiene to keep our community safe and healthy. It is wonderful to welcome more people back to services. And, this past Friday was another great day because it was PAYDAY!!
