Closure of Facility Based-Programs

Re: Closure of Facility Based-Programs

Date: 11/20/2020

Good afternoon,

Unfortunately, the McKean County COVID-19 rate of transmission has moved into the “Substantial” level (PCR Rate is > 10%).  Due to the increase in risk, the Office for Developmental Programs (ODP) has ordered that we close our Community Participation Support Programs for 14 days, minimally.  Therefore, the Workshop, Life Skills, and the Brad Center will be closed at the end of the day.  The Programs will re-open when McKean County returns to the moderate or low level of transmission for 14 consecutive days (PCR Rate < 10%).   The closure order does not apply to our Community-Based Programs (In Home and Community / Community Employment Services).  Supports and services for participants in these programs are to be considered on a case-by-case basis.   

All CPS staff are to report to work on Monday 11/23/2020. The Board of Directors and Agency Administration are asking that all available staff continue to work to meet the needs of our industrial partners.  Our partners not only support Futures, but they depend on us as well.  We need to do everything within our power to maintain those vital relationships.  CPS staff interested in Community-Based work or have any questions / concerns are asked to communicate with our Director of Human Resources, Brittany Keck.

This has been a very difficult year, but we can and will get through this! We will survive it best if we stick together and remain diligent. Keep it going! On behalf of the Board of Directors and Administrative Team, I would like to thank each one of you for your continued efforts to keep everyone safe during this difficult time. I remain confident that Futures is quite capable of taking on this ever-changing challenge.

As Lester Holt would say, “Please take care of yourself, and each other.”
