March 13, 2020
We know the spread of the new Coronavirus (COVID-19) is very much on the minds of the clients we serve and members of our community. Our priority is, and will always be, to ensure the safety and well-being of the children and families we assist, our staff, and community members as a whole.
As our community moves toward extreme caution, our Leadership team, in communication with our Board of Directors and public officials, have developed a plan focused on the public goal of slowing the rate of the disease while also continuing to serve those in our community who need us the most. We are always concerned about our clients, and that is why we have worked to develop the best strategies to ensure services continue. We are committed to providing each client the same level of care, resources and/or supplies we normally would but in a different manner than is traditional.
While this is an unprecedented time for most, our organization is set up to be easily adaptable, resilient and solution oriented; much like our clients. We appreciate your continued support for Maslow Project in our goal of providing services and supplies for those critical, urgent needs when there is no other resource available.
