A message from Executive Director Sarah Porter

Responding to health crises has been part of our line of work for decades, and each time, our red doors have remained opened. This time won’t be an exception.We have developed a multi-staged response that adopts guidelines issued by public health officials and allows us to continue to foster a welcoming environment to those in need. As the situation unfolds, we will continue to be responsive and strategic.  In this time of great uncertainty, I do know this for sure: We need to stay together, take care of one another, and look after our communities.
