Planning for Winter

UPDATE: Our tentative plan (listed below) is still in place but on hold due to the Governor's statewide mitigation measures scheduled to last until December 14.

As we head into winter, our goal is still to keep everyone safe and healthy. With the limited opening of our Thrift Shop we have been very encouraged by the feedback from our customers that they feel safe in the COVID requirements we have set up. We are pleased to say that we have not had reports of positive cases within our staff or volunteers.

At the Center, we have begun to formulate a tentative plan on how we can safely start some of our much needed in-person programs again under the Safe Start guidelines. The numbers will be much smaller and the rooms bigger, but we can begin to offer some things.

Below is a list of the stages we will start with and look forward to. While we cannot give you a date that our 2nd stage will begin, we know we can start with our 1st stage now. We remain closed to the public and we still cannot open the doors completely until the governor feels it’s safe to move to Phase 4.
