Welcome to Community Connect,
our new weekly guide to the happenings at
Cancer Support Community Valley/Ventura/Santa Barbara!  
Status of our Building Sale
To update our constituents and share the most current information, this weekly email will help us to keep the lines of communication open. Our building sale recently fell out of escrow and our property is back on the market. I want to reassure you that providing support and services to our community is our number one priority. We are in a good financial position and our reopening plan will commence, with a target reopening date of Monday, May 2nd. The sale of the building, of course, will allow CSCVVSB to have a robust investment portfolio and allow us the flexibility to invest in expansion of our services, as the need continues to grow throughout our service areas. The sale will also allow us to find a more affordable location that suits our needs for space and layout. These financial reserves will assure our long-term financial stability. I invite you to join me on March 31st at 8:30 a.m. to a virtual coffee. I will discuss this topic, as well as further details about our reopening plan. Click here to RSVP. I look forward to the opportunity to meet many of you in person in the coming months!
