Changes to COI's services during COVID-19 outbreak
First of all, we understand how much anxiety and stress many people are feeling during this very unusual time in the world’s history. We hope that you are getting the support you need from those around you, and that you are giving support to others.
COI’s philosophy behind the decisions we’ve made in response to the COVID-19/Corona virus outbreak are intended to allow us to continue to serve as many people as we can with as many services as possible, while also keeping our clients, staff and volunteers safe and healthy.
The COI building is currently closed to the public, however, by utilizing the intercom outside our door, we will continue to provide food boxes to community members, as well as providing mail and message pick-up for people who already use those services. Community showers have been cancelled until further notice.
