Summer 2021 Message

It has been a while since we last provided an updated message and as we approach the summer months it seems a very good time.  

The state of New Hampshire has continued to have an increasing percentage of the population who have either been fully vaccinated or received at least their first dose. The COVID positive test rates are also down significantly. The Community Crossroads office has been open to employees throughout the pandemic with fiscal, senior leadership, administrative, & support employees at the office daily throughout the pandemic. The remainder of employees have been working remotely. While the dedicated professionals of Community Crossroads have proven that remote operations have made it possible to effectively support the individuals and families we serve, we are anxious to meet and work in person.

Over the summer months, because of the great success New Hampshire has had in reducing community transmission and illness, we are pleased to inform you that we will be phasing back to in office operations for all employees. As with many businesses in today’s Pandemic environment,partial remote work for some employees will likely continue.  Over the summer months you can expect to see Service Coordinators begin to resume in person visits to community residences, day services, enhanced family care providers, and with families.  During visits all Community Crossroads Staff will be required to continue to adhere to NH DHHS Public Health recommendations of Universal Precautions which include:

  • Mask wearing 
  • Social distancing for the safety of everyone
  • Proper hand hygiene

Starting July 1st, we will open our downstairs conference room by appointment only to visitors of up to 3 people to meet with a Community Crossroads employee. We ask for your continued patience as we transition into this new phase over the summer months. We hope that NH will continue to see an increase in vaccinations rates and a decrease in infection, hospitalizations and test positivity rates. As this happens, we will continue to reevaluate our office operationsand provide updates.  

On behalf of all the staff at Community Crossroads, we hope you all enjoy the glorious and safe summer in New Hampshire.

 

 

“With generous assistance from Community Crossroads, my daughter was able to move into her own apartment…She wanted her independence and wanted to live in her own place…She is thriving in her new home and with continued support will continue to do so. We thank Community Crossroads for giving our daughter the ability to pursue her independent living, just like everyone else.”
– Brenda, mother of Courtney
