To comply with Governor Wolf’s mandate that non-essential businesses be closed and with guidance from the PA Office of Developmental Programs (ODP), that funds many of our programs, Small Group Employment, many Community Employment Services, Creative Expressions Adult Training Facility and Prevocational Workshop are closed for participants until the mandate is lifted.
However, ODP has determined that home and community-based services are considered life-sustaining and are exempt from the Governor’s directive asking for the closure of all non-essential businesses. Therefore, Via will provide limited Community Participation supports, In-Home services and Behavioral Support services. As we learn more from ODP, coordinators will reach out to participants about services that are available. We are reaching out to Via staff now to determine who can provide these services.
Coordinators are working remotely and are available by email or phone to answer your questions. Please contact your coordinator by email or phone if you need anything or email Via@ViaNet.org.
