in the Crisis
The novel coronavirus has changed many things, it has changed the way we work, interact, and communicate. It has created new standards of health safety. It is currently changing the economic landscape of our country as we all hunker down and wonder what it will be like to return to our daily lives. “During these times of uncertainty,” has become the first line of every email that hits our inbox, but during these times, one thing is certain, and that is, that COVID-19 has not changed the dedication of the team at SJCS. We are proud of how our team members have reacted in this pandemic, their level of selflessness, their caring for the vulnerable individuals they support, and their flexibility to help out in any way possible. Our team is amazing and have truly proven to be champions in the midst of this crisis.
Advancing Community During a Time of Crisis
We are all experiencing the effects of isolation during the COVID-19 pandemic and realizing how very important personal connections are especially in a time of uncertainty. At SJCS our Mission is to advance inclusive communities, however, the new norm of social distancing we are having to re-imagine what that means. On a daily basis we are leveraging technology to connect the people we support with their loved ones and vital services and therapies. If there is one thing this world health crisis is teaching us, it is how very important a sense of community is, even if we have to rethink and change the way we connect with each other while apart.
