As news of the coronavirus (COVID-19) in our community continues to develop, we are actively working on trying to stop the spread of the virus by practicing social distancing, hand washing, sanitizing, and reducing activities here on campus. Here is a list of updates to keep you informed:
As city mandates continue to evolve, we are learning many local businesses have limited their daily operations severely to mitigate the risk of spreading the virus. In an effort to help keep these businesses afloat, were creating a “Thank You” campaign to highlight how they’ve helped PARC in numerous ways and how you are able to support them during this time. Partnerships with local businesses are essential to non-profits, and PARC has been lucky enough to build some incredible relationships with businesses all over the Tampa Bay area.
Our funders have taken extraordinary actions to help mitigate any challenges we should encounter, and we are so grateful to our partnerships with The Agency for Persons with Disabilities, The Florida ARF, The Agency for Healthcare Administration and The Juvenile Welfare Board.
Unfortunately we’re starting to see the financial implications the coronavirus will have on our organization and our employees. During times of crisis, PARC seeks financial contributions from our community to support any budgetary shortfalls we may experience. We ask you to please consider making a monetary donation, large or small, to help us continue providing life-enriching services to children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
Sound your voice to tell the world that Direct Support Professionals (DSP’s) are essential to ensuring the health and safety of the people with intellectual and developmental disabilities they support, especially during a global health pandemic:
We’re navigating through challenging times, but together we’ll get through it. Our thoughts go out to everyone affected by this crisis. We will continue to update you with any new information we have.
