HRHA is monitoring the COVID-19 situation seriously and adjusting operations accordingly. As you know, HRHA serves some of the most vulnerable populations in our community. We will provide weekly updates as the situation progresses. Ensuring our residents remain healthy and housed, and keeping our staff safe, remain priorities.
Moving Forward-Please accept my thanks and appreciation to all our residents, program participants, and community stakeholders for working with us as we implemented social distancing policies and changed how we do business. For the near future, we will continue operating on essential staff status with limited public access to the main administrative office- being responsive to all communications through email, mail, and telephone. We recognize the housing need within our community and anticipate resuming processing of new applications and leasing up in mid-April. We apologize for any inconvenience with our temporary suspension of new admissions.
We are hearing firsthand how the virus has impacted many in our community, the trauma of adjusting to the economic change, and the uncertainty with the near future. We want to be as responsive as possible with the understanding of the importance of working together to support public health and reduce the impact of COVID-19 within our community. Thank you and be safe.
– Michael Wong, Executive Director, HRHA
