To Our Safe & Sound Friends, Families & Colleagues,
At the heart of our mission at Safe & Sound is our commitment to protecting the children and families in our community. We are, therefore, taking precautions to minimize the risk of exposure and the potential for transmission of COVID-19 and, at the same time, caring for our clients and those in our community who need us most.
Guided by the Center for Disease Control and San Francisco Public Health Department, we will continue to provide essential services, including offering food to our clients and counseling for families in crisis, for as long as safely possible.
We are also postponing our 2020 Blue Ribbon Luncheon originally scheduled for April 16, 2020 until the Fall. Details on the new date will come shortly.
As we modify services and seek alternative ways to support our community, we are mindful of the reality of racism and xenophobia in the context of COVID-19 and future outbreaks. Misinformation about the outbreak has led to acts of violence and bullying. We stand against this misinformed response and continue our commitment to creating a compassionate and responsive community.
Together, let us focus on being well, appreciating our loved ones, and providing direct support for those who need a little bit more during this difficult time.
Thank you for your solidarity as we continue our work to strengthen families and protect children.
