Announcement: AIC COVID-19 Update 3/27/2020
American Indian Center COVID-19 Update 3/27/2020
Dear AIC members, friends and community,
As we enter into this new spring season, I am reflecting on this time and am mindful of the idea of birth and renewal. Flowers are blooming and the sun has been shining. AIC should be holding programs everyday, but our current situation has changed our plans. We have been operating on an as needed basis for the last few weeks but as we continue to learn more about the virus the Board and I have made some important decisions as we weather this current crisis together. Effective Wednesday, March 25th, 2020 AIC has closed our operations until April 30, 2020. Staff have been laid off, but have also been given the assurance that they will return to their positions once it is safe to come back together.
We recognize that the world has taken a pause and AIC will as well. We also understand that this situation will change quickly so we are working like those spring blooms outside. We are taking time to write emergency grants, rethink how we respond to this crisis and are creating new models of service delivery. This is a time for AIC to also bring forth new programs and services. We need your help. Please complete our survey so we can figure out how best to serve you during this time. We will continue to provide resources via social media so keep checking in. Stay safe, stay home and visit us virtually to stay up to date on all the new things soon to come from AIC.
