Community Resources for Justice is committed to providing exceptional services and a healthy, safe environment for those in our care and our staff. We are closely monitoring the ongoing coronavirus outbreak through our partners at the local, state, and federal levels, and we are working hard to ensure that both staff and residents are following the CDC guidelines for staying healthy, including frequent handwashing and using hand sanitizer, covering coughs or sneezes, and avoiding gatherings.

We’ve also taken additional steps to have adequate supplies of things like gloves, disinfectant wipes, thermometers, and prescription medications for those that take them in case they’re needed in the coming days and weeks.

Our residential programs will remain open and staffed. Our employees are considered “essential workers” under the restrictions now in place in Massachusetts, Connecticut, and New York, and will continue to be allowed to travel to and from work so that they can continue to provide the care and support that our residents depend on.

For many of our residents, these precautions have caused unfortunate disruptions to regular routines, such as work, community activities, and support group meetings. However, our staff are working hard to make sure that residents in our programs are as happy, healthy, and engaged as possible during this difficult time.
