Dear Victory Programs’ community,

I am reaching out to share some updates about Victory Programs’ response to the coronavirus (COVID-19). 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.

The health and safety of those accessing services, staff, friends, and supporters, continue to be our top priorities. 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.

We provide services to more than 3,200 individuals in Greater Boston each year – many of whom have immune systems that can be easily compromised and are disproportionally burdened by health crises. Victory Programs is built on the idea that everyone should have access to services in times of personal or community crises. In light of this pandemic, we uphold that mission and plan to continue to provide the safety, help, and resources, individuals need.  To date, there are no confirmed cases within any of our 19 programs, many of which function 24/7.

We are adopting the suggested actions from the CDC, Massachusetts’ Department of Public Health, and the Boston Public Health Commission including:

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.

Thank you for your ongoing partnership, continued support, and compassion for those experiencing hardship.

Sincerely
