JVS COVID-19 Program Update

Dear friends,
In response to the rapidly changing situation of COVID-19, JVS is making some changes to our programming to attempt to balance service continuity for the communities we serve while protecting the health of staff, clients, volunteers and the community.

 

As of March 16, direct services at our 4600 The Paseo location will be paused. All classes and volunteer opportunities will not be held at this time. Staff will continue to provide services to clients via telephone, videoconference, and in person when necessary and prudent to do so, as the communities we serve may be especially vulnerable to the economic, physical health and mental health repercussions of this event. This change is effective until March 31, at which time, we will reevaluate.

 

If you have questions about JVS services, please contact our main switchboard at 816.471.2808. You may also reach me directly at hsinger@jvskc.org. We recognize that this is an unprecedented and unique situation, and we appreciate your flexibility and support.

 

Thanks,
Hilary Cohen Singer
Executive Director
JVS | (816) 471-2808 | 4600 The Paseo, Kansas City, MO 64110 | www.jvskc.org
Dear Global Table Supporters,

Given the rapidly changing environment with COVID-19, we have thoughtfully considered and prioritized the health and safety of our community, to do our part to slow the spread of the disease and give our healthcare system the maximum capacity to deal with the growing needs of their patients. As such, we feel it is the responsible course of action not to hold our April 19th Global Table fundraiser in celebration of our 70 years of service.

At this time, we are evaluating our options for next steps, and how we can best find a way to celebrate our work and honor friends like you. We will keep you updated and appreciate all that you do to support JVS.  Please contact mkimmel@jvskc.org if you have further questions or concerns.

Sincerely,

Elizabeth Glynn and Juan Rangel
Global Table Co-chairs
