Categories: Blog, Featured News

Wonderful news so early in 2021!  Vaccinations have begun for residents of our group homes and apartments as well as for residential staff members and personnel who work in our homes. It is because of your continued advocacy, the people we support and these staff were prioritized as part of New York State’s Phase 1A — the first group of people to receive the vaccine alongside healthcare workers.  Check out what staff had to say about the vaccine experience:
