THANK YOU for your continuing dedication to protect and support our families. This is a very challenging time for everyone. Many of our staff and families are choosing to not schedule care right now in accordance with the Governor’s Safer at Home Order. Some of our families require ongoing support and as long as everyone is well and in agreement, “essential” care may continue to be provided to our respite families and adults living independently who receive our ILS services.
Our office remains open with some administrative staff working remotely.
PLEASE NOTE: our last email to staff included directions regarding limiting all community access and transportation at this time. Please read it thoroughly and if you did not see it check your email junk folder or our website’s COVID-19 page.
Since all local schools and day programs are closed now for at least another month, we are being asked to provide additional support during the day to some families when care is safe and universal precautions are followed.
APPLYING FOR BENEFITS - If your work hours have decreased with CISS and you are open to helping other families, please call us to discuss options. If you have questions regarding filing for unemployment benefits, we have important information and links on the COVID-19 page of our website, which you can find here https://www.islandsocialservices.org/covid-19/
We are committed to staying open to support all of our staff and families.
