Dear Parents/Guardians and Community,
Click to read the full letter.
As we are monitoring what local officials and school districts are doing in response to COVID-19, we will be closing ALL of our Clubhouses and programs effective immediately. We will evaluate reopening based on the advice of health officials and school districts. At this point, we expect the closure to last at least 2 weeks, and potentially longer. We are in conversations to serve as food distribution centers. Additional guidance will be given once we are formally requested to serve the community in this way.
We will reach out as more guidance unfolds from our partners and the health department. In the meantime, United Way’s 211 call service is available to help people facing difficulties. Those seeking help should dial 2-1-1, text their zip code to 898-211, or visit PA211sw.org
Please be on the lookout for further communications in the upcoming days. We are working closely with the communities and schools we serve. Know that we understand the challenges this prolonged closure will put on our families. However, we believe closing our Clubhouses is in the best interest of limiting the spread of COVID-19 and keeping our youth and their families healthy.
Dr. Lisa Abel-Palmieri
