In an effort to act quickly, and meet the needs of our clients during the current COVID-19 pandemic, CHATS has established an Emergency Support Fund to aid in the increased efforts needed to keep our vulnerable senior population safely at home during this challenging and worrisome time.
With the suspension of CHATS’ community-based programs, which are relied upon by hundreds of seniors and caregivers as forms of socialization and respite, seniors are experiencing new levels of isolation. CHATS’ staff members are working tirelessly to deploy even more essential services at this time including, Meals on Wheels, medication & prescriptions drop-offs, respite care, safety checks and transportation; supports which are vital in keeping the senior population healthy and out of hospitals.
We have already received an outpouring of support from the community wanting to volunteer for us during this time, and we couldn’t be prouder of the community we serve! However, out of caution for your well-being, we have put the community volunteer assistance we regularly rely on hold. This is a loss of nearly 400 people to our daily operations.
With your generous donation to our Emergency Support Fund, we will be able to keep up our efforts in the fight against COVID-19 strong, and support the areas in greatest need.
