This past month we have endured one of the most unexpected disasters our world has ever seen. COVID-19 has impacted our agencies, programs, partners and supporters in more ways than we could have imagined. We are grateful that our members have been working diligently to keep the youth in their care safe and support the needs of their staff and families.
The health and safety of our staff, members, partners and the youth they serve will always be our first priority. Ron Desantis, the Governor of Florida, recently issued a Stay-At-Home order for the entire state. This order asks that all residents stay in their homes and only leave to perform necessary tasks. You can read the order by clicking here. We hope that everyone is taking all precautions possible to maintain your physical and mental health during these difficult times, so we can come out of this stronger than ever before.
Our hearts go out to everyone who is experiencing severe difficulties related to the COVID-19 virus. While this current situation presents significant challenges, our commitment to creating safe pathways for youth and building stronger families and communities is unwavering. This strong and resilient Network continues to amaze me with how you all have handled each obstacle during this pandemic with nothing but strength and grace. We will continue to get through this together. If you are able to donate PPEs or cloth masks, or know of any available resources for these items, please contact us!
