As an essential services provider for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities, Sycamore Services is providing care throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. The individuals we serve depend on us every day, and we are doing everything in our power to provide safe, outstanding care without interruption.
The safety of our staff and individuals served is our top priority and we have invested in medical-grade Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for staff members who are providing face-to-face, in-home care. We are there for the individuals we serve every day and we will continue to be there if someone falls ill. Many individuals we serve are considered high risk for COVID-19 complications, and we have a responsibility to serve these individuals, no matter the circumstances. Several staff members have even stepped forward and volunteered to care for anyone who contracts COVID-19. This is an astounding act of kindness and dedication and we could not be more proud of our staff in these unprecedented times!
Sycamore Services is also investing in better tools to allow us to provide certain services virtually using phones, tablets, and personal computers. Dynamic virtual services are temporarily being used for Recreational Therapy, Children’s Services, Behavior Management, Counseling, and Employment Services so our program participants can still access these life-enhancing services while safely isolated at home.
Although these investments were not part of our original budget, they have become necessary expenses for us to continue daily services under the current conditions and stay-at-home orders. Your donation today helps Sycamore Services continue services while protecting the health and safety of our staff and individuals served. Please consider donating today. We truly appreciate your generosity and wish you all the best during these extraordinary times.
