We hope that you are all safe, healthy, and have what you need to make it through this pandemic. In times of crisis, we are all called to bring our best and as community leaders, we know you will do your part to keep our community safe and supported. We are in close contact with County, State and Federal officials and will do our best to keep you informed on a timely basis. Please see below for a list of resources that are helpful during this time including health updates, community assistance programs and business resources.

The LFI and ELI classes have been postponed until further notice but we are using technology to keep the groups connected and deliver content in smaller bites. Information on how to participate will be delivered by email and available on our website. The LLP cohort that was scheduled to begin in March has been postponed until the fall and applications are open. All in-person events are postponed until further notice, including our Board of Supervisors Breakfast, and Board and Brew boardmatching event.

At this time, let us not forget about those that are still working to keep us safe, provide healthcare, ensure that food is available and that our basic needs are met. Please offer assistance when possible, tip big and know that a heartfelt "Thank you" or another sign of appreciation will go a long way. Please stay connected and let us know how we can help.
