Executive Director Update

Due to the recent increase of COVID-19 cases, the highly transmissible BA.5 variant and concerns from staff, participants and Board of Directors, we have decided effective immediately, all of our programs will switch back to 100% virtual via Zoom. We will also close our office and staff will work from home, but will be available in the office by appointment.

We will continue to monitor both Ventura and Los Angeles County information and adjust appropriately. The safety and health of our participants, volunteers and staff are of the utmost priority and we appreciate your understanding. Please contact me with any questions you may have.

Be well and stay safe,
Monica Merryman
Executive Director
