Covid-19 Updates & Resources

A note to our community:

East End’s offices are closed effective Wednesday, March 19, but we continue to provide services.

Closing our offices to support the Governor’s efforts to ‘flatten the curve’ was one of the toughest decisions we’ve ever made at East End, but as of March 19 we closed our offices to the public, and sent most of our staff home to work. Offices will be officially closed until at least April 3.

Pleased be assured that we continue to work with our individual clients, families and children using phone, text and email technologies. Our Miracle Makers, Youth Center, Wright Brothers afterschool program, and Camp Mariposa staff continue to reach out to families and children to support them through this challenging time. If families, individual adults, or our Seniors (who should not be leaving their homes) are unable to get the information or resources they need, our staff will figure out how we can help. Just let us know what you need. All staff are phoning clients regularly, sharing resources, and learning new ways to provide excellent services that limit our contact with each other. 

Phone messages to our main number (937 259-1898) are checked daily and requests for assistance are directed to the appropriate staff team. 

Our email address is eastend@westcare.com, and it too will be checked regularly. Please feel free to call any of the staff with whom you already have a relationship, and we’ll work together to solve problems. Call the main phone number if you need a reminder about someone you’ve already worked with on our staff.

We will be posting daily tips and information on Facebook that may include information about where food can be accessed, parenting tips, maintaining our mental health throughout the crisis, job opportunities, and general messages of support for our friends in recovery. So please check Facebook regularly. We hope to continue forklift trainings and we are still available to do resumes, hold remote work-readiness conversations, and prepare you for a job interview. (There are lots of jobs out there!)

Please feel free to share any of the information we post with your friends and relatives, and let us know your ideas about getting through this on our Facebook page. And call us if you need something/anything that we might be able to help with.

Please, stay well and protect yourself and your loved ones by maintaining proper hygiene, and physically distancing yourselves at least six feet. 

Take good care of yourselves. And we’ll do the same, so we are all here to provide support in person sometime in the future.
