As the leader of St. Anne’s my thoughts and prayers are with all our program participants, clients, stakeholders, supporters, staff and board members during these uncertain times, and like many of you, I am concerned about the impact of the Coronavirus-COVID-19 on our community and our world. The health and safety of our larger St. Anne’s Family – which includes families who reside both on and off-campus, the families who attend our early childhood education centers, those who rely on our Mental Health services, and rely on our residential, transitional and permanent supportive housing and food support – is the utmost importance. I completely understand how stressful the unpredictability of the current situation can be, but we continue to seek hope and provide guidance and support to all our families. Our leadership is monitoring the situation and we are following all safety protocols recommended by local, state and federal agencies. Our team members who are able to work from home are providing support in this complex and rapidly evolving health crisis. Our team is modeling strength and resilience in the face of adversity, and everyone is rising to the occasion. Working together to build safe, nurturing, and resilient families is our mission and what St. Anne’s is upholding now more than ever. Thank you for your support and ongoing interest in meeting the need of all those we serve on a daily basis. In times like these, we see the critically important role that nonprofits like ours play in our country.
