TransCen and our projects continue to operate during the current public health emergency.
As an organization dedicated to improving the lives of individuals through meaningful work and community inclusion, we have been closely monitoring developments related to COVID-19/Coronavirus and its impact on the individuals we serve, their families, and all of our partners and stakeholders.
During this time, we remain committed to ensuring the well-being of everyone in our community. Some immediate measures we have taken as an organization are to:
- Ensure our team is working remotely for as long as necessary. At this time, we know one of the most effective and powerful measures is to adopt social distancing and we are supportive of this strategy.
- Remain in close contact with our partners and community members. We understand that COVID-19/Coronavirus may have a greater impact on individuals with disabilities and remain committed to doing our part to continue to support our clients who are continuing to work (our heroes!) during this time.
We are rapidly shifting gears from in-person to virtual supports and services. During the health crisis, our Employment Consultants continue to work with clients on their resumes (video, written, and other alternative formats), conduct job development activities (virtual job shadows and informational interviews), and employment skill development (online sessions such as Skills to Pay the Bills). Additionally, our Employment Consultants can work with the families on ways to keep our clients more engaged, goal-driven, and work on assignments at home to maintain engagement. Our timeline is immediate and we are already implementing these steps.
Please contact us if we can provide assistance. We are here for you!
