An Update from our CEO Regarding COVID-19
Dear StarVista Friends,
We are facing one of the most uncharted and unprecedented challenges of the 21st century. The challenge is larger than any one of us can handle on our own and requires the utmost understanding and empathy for one another. We are committed to providing services to our most vulnerable clients throughout this time. We believe that communication is key and are taking several steps to help our community stay informed and engaged.
We are so proud to say that StarVista is continuing to provide all our services to our clients. We are committed to finding safe ways to be available and supportive to our community during the “shelter in place”. Our school-based, mental health, AOD, early childhood, crisis intervention, Pride Center, youth housing, mandated, and all other services are continuing using Telehealth. Please refer to our web site, www.star-vista.org, for contact information.
We want to also acknowledge our incredible teams who are working at our residential and 24/7 programs. StarVista’s First Chance Sobering Station, our two youth housing programs Daybreak and Your House South, and our Former foster youth housing program are still working directly with clients to ensure they have a place to stay and essential services. We are so proud of these teams and the work we are doing. We also want to acknowledge our Administration team who must come in to keep the business side running. Thank you so much and we are so grateful to you.
We hope that you will continue to stay engaged with the StarVista through our website and social media platforms. Again, let me conclude by saying that it is my greatest hope that you are healthy, and that you stay resilient during these challenging times. We will get through this together and will emerge a stronger community.
Sara Larios Mitchell, Ph.D., MACP
