Information update during COVID-19

 

Key Community Contacts During COVID-19 

 

I hope everyone is keeping safe and healthy.  We will get through this together and I am looking forward to re-connecting with you in person once it is safe to do so.

In the meantime, in addition to links posted in Happening Now on the home page, I wanted to provide some contact information and phone numbers for you in case you need to reach these organizations, agencies, or services during the pandemic.  My goal is to keep this updated with new information all in one spot on my website so you can avoid taking time searching around for these helpful community resources.

Please contact me if there are other important numbers that you would like to see posted.
