Neighbors Network Temporarily Cancels Scheduled Programs
The mission of Neighbors Network is to provide the resources and services that enable adults 50+ to Thrive in Community!
With our mission in mind and in recognizing that our core population of clients fall into the category of high risk (over 65 years of age, or with underlying health conditions, or with weakened immune systems) the Neighbors Network executive board of directors has made the decision to close our center at this time up through March 30, 2020. This date is subject to change based on recommendations from our local, state and government agencies.
What this will look like:
* All scheduled programs, events and activities on our calendar are canceled.
* Curbside distribution of food and supplies from food pantry (while supplies last).
* Phone lines open for referral and support services Monday - Thursday from 10:00 am - 2:00 pm.
* Clients encouraged to stay home; phone outreach to all regular clients and participants.
* Concierge in-home services will continued to current clients, and service providers closely monitored.
* Concierge shopping services will continue to current clients (we will shop and/or pick-up medications and deliver).
* All transportation services discontinued.
We want to keep you safe and to help reduce and slow the spread of the infection. As a community-based organization we strive to be responsible and do our part to help slow the spread of COVID-19. Our staff are taking great measure to make sure that we are keeping the center clean and sanitized, however we also understand that social distancing will help to reduce the frequency of contact, thereby reducing the risks of person-to person transmission.
We will continue to monitor this situation and to pay close attention to the recommendation of the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services. As this situation progresses, we will update you on any changes in future programming.
