Welcome to Community Connect - May 02, 2022
Executive Director Update

We are happy to announce the reopening of our office this morning! We will begin the process with part-time hours and a transition of some healthy lifestyle classes and some support groups resuming in-person. Status of classes and groups will be updated on our website.

Office hours will be 9:00 a.m. – Noon, Monday – Thursday. Other hours will be available by appointment, as needed.

For the safety of our participants, visitors and staff, safety protocols and recommendations from the CDC, OSHA, our healthcare partners and Professional Advisory Board members have been incorporated into our operations and guidelines. Effective immediately, all participants and visitors to our office will be required to show proof of full vaccination at each visit and boosters are strongly recommended. Masks will also be required.

Welcome back, we have missed everyone!
