Happy Wednesday! Just wanted to shine a🔦 on our amazing employees. Today we celebrate Cheryl and all she does👏. Here is an email we received that gives us some insight that we are reflecting our core value of "Dignity":

Hey Jenn and Gillian, I just got a call from (name excluded for privacy) mom. She said she meant to call a while ago but got too sidetracked. About 2 weeks ago Cheryl took (name excluded for privacy) and her group to the Dollar Store. Cheryl didn’t know, but a teacher that works with mom happened to be there and observed Cheryl interacting with (name excluded for privacy). The teacher was amazed at what a wonderful job Cheryl did throughout the trip. Cheryl was polite, patient, explained everything clearly to (name excluded for privacy), and did an absolutely phenomenal job. Mom was asking if we could recognize Cheryl for the wonderful job which I told her we definitely would do.



So first, what a great example of you never knowing who’s watching!!!

Update regarding Masks and Safety Protocols for COVID:
The Harford Center’s first priority is safety. We will ALWAYS err on the side of caution. To that end, we will continue our mask mandate for all staff and participants. We will continually reassess this decision as more people get vaccinated and as more guidance is provided by the State. At present, we have approximately 74% of our staff and 72% of our participants vaccinated. We are HIGHLY encouraging that everyone get vaccinated. As guidelines are updated and more information is available, we will be reassessing our decision. In the meantime, we will continue with strict cleaning and masking protocols. If you visit the Harford Center building, we will still require temperature checks and masks for all visitors. Thank you for your support and understanding. Our commitment is to keep our participants, staff, and community safe.

Happy New Years everyone! My name is Ezra, and as a former social worker, I created an activity resource site called DSPortal.site, providing a much easier way of finding activities and private events in your community. So if your New Years resolutions are to get more exercise, volunteer, get a job, etc. DSPortal.site is for you. Enjoy!
Colin wishes all of his friends at The Harford Center a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

If you are able, please consider a donation to the Harford Center. Our staff are working hard to offer meaningful days to our participants in their homes. Your donation could help purchase much needed PPE, activities for the home, or other necessities. #stayhome #staysafe
The staff here are wonderful and supportive of the individuals and each other in a harmonious way.
Is the center opening on time today, Mon 3/4?
Any idea if there will be a delay tomorrow?
