Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)
ACHIEVE’s Leadership Team continues to meet and discuss COVID-19 issues and containment strategies regularly. We continue to identify promising practices and prevention strategies in our field, the education system and other industries throughout the United States. We are prepared to implement an appropriate amount of reasonable action steps to actively protect the overall health and safety of people supported and of all our employees.
I am very proud of the proactive position our agency has taken and all of your support in being attentive to good hygiene and best practices. I welcome your feedback and ideas as we navigate this uncharted territory moving forward.
An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
Amy G. Howard, MSW
Chief Executive Officer
COVID-19 Update (3/19/2020):
In an effort to minimize the spread of COVID-19, The Office for People With Developmental Disabilities has directed all providers to temporarily suspend operations of site-based day programs until further notice.
At ACHIEVE, these closures include:
Day Habilitation Services – Suspended
Community-Based Prevocational Services – Suspended
Site-Based Prevocational Services – Suspended
Residential Visitation – Suspended, unless medically or clinically necessary
These are rapidly changing developments, and we’re committed to keeping this post updated as program statuses change. We thank everyone for their continued patience and cooperation during these challenging times.
COVID-19 Update (3/16/2020):
In an effort to do our part in preventing the spread of COVID-19, and with the support and cooperation of the families of the individuals we serve, we will be limiting our Day Habilitation services in all three counties, and requiring all employees who do not provide direct services, to work remotely for a minimum of two weeks.
This was a difficult decision to make, but one that our team feels is in the best interest of our employees, the individuals we serve, and our community as a whole.
