COVID-19 and Dixon Transition Society
Category : Blog
At Dixon Transition Society, the safety of our staff and clients is always a priority.
Transition houses and safe spaces for women and children are an essential service: this is still true during a pandemic. In fact, upheavals like this can increase the risk of violence for women, so our work remains as important as ever.
During this pandemic, we continue to prioritize health and safety while continuing to offer quality services. We want to share some of the measures we are taking to slow the spread of COVID-19.
Our Transitional Housing Programs continue to operate.
Front line staff continue to come to work and provide essential services to our current residents while practicing caution, good hygiene, and social distancing measures.
Staff who can provide services remotely are working from home.
Our Holdom administration office is effectively closed until further notice.
However, our Holdom staff continue to work remotely. Get in touch.
We are temporarily not accepting any in-kind donations. We have also temporarily suspended volunteer activities and events, with the exception of our grocery shoppers, who continue to deliver groceries to our transition house while practicing social distancing. Thank you, grocery shoppers, for continuing to give your time and effort!
We are so grateful to our frontline staff who continue to work and support women and children fleeing violence under such extraordinary circumstances.
We are also so grateful for our community of supporters for making the work we do possible.
Take care of yourselves, and we look forward to seeing you again soon!
