To Americana friends:
For the next 90 days, (and longer if needed) we will serve meals to youth under 18 years old and increase the availability of our translators to families looking for health and wellness care. We are the only center for many in our area that has the capacity to provide such services. Our doors are open to all, whether you have participated in our programs for 10 years, or only seen our Center from the bus. We have partnered with JCPS and Dare to Care to meet the needs of our community, given the uncertainty of the future we have no idea how long these services will be needed, or how many we will serve. What we do know is when we started serving meals, we served 9 children, now we are regularly serving over 100.
As we shift to meet the needs of our community, we also need to support our program staff, and the wellness of our employees. Our strength, agility, and community are being tested, and we know together we can come out of this challenge with resilience.
