They are right in the mist of trying to get reopened and get all the necessary equipment in order to make that happen safely.  You can only imagine what this has been like turning our 74 year old organization into teletherapy and online school as well as pre-packages being sent home for our pre-school children. They have really never stopped serving, but working in a different manner.
