OUR STAFF
To decrease potential exposure and #plankthecurve of COVID-19, we have transitioned the majority of staff with non-direct client care and transportation to a work from home status [WFH].

• All group activities have been suspended until it is safe to resume.
• Virtual workshops are being developed and offered for Employment and Language Services and virtual meetings are encouraged.

All steps that have been taken are designed to protect everyone including our staff, our community, and the thousands of vulnerable individuals and families we serve every day.

The COVID pandemic creates a whole new set of difficulties for the already vulnerable, precariously housed or employed.  While COVID-19 also presents a new set of challenges for us at Caledon Community Services, and we have adapted and stand ready to embrace our vision and mission and tackle this new world. Together, we can get through this.
