90 has faced many challenges as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic
over the past year, and like many agencies and businesses, had to
adapt. Staff adapted by making outreach calls during the
shutdowns last spring, and again this past winter. With the help
of government funding, food vouchers and gift cards were handed out to
Club members to help with grocery purchases, the I-Chef program was
initiated in February where members took home pre-packaged ready to
cook meal kits, and subsidizing cell phone plans to selected
members. When the Club was open, one-on-one and group sessions
took place to help members cope with the stress of COVID-19. Click here for a full report for the
past year.Check back on this website to find out what is happening. New events
are being planned and will be posted as information becomes available.
