A Message of Gratitude from the Skills Society Board

A Message of Gratitude from the Skills Society Board

Over one year ago, the arrival of the COVID-19 pandemic turned our world upside down. We have all been challenged and impacted in significant ways. The pandemic has changed the way we live, and called on us to make sacrifices both large and small. For the Skills Society family, those sacrifices are keenly felt. The pandemic has meant the pain and uncertainty of separation between the individuals we support and their families and loved ones. It has meant worry, frustration, and loneliness.

If bright spots can be found in such a trying time, one such beacon is the Skills Society staff who have been on the frontlines every day. Throughout the past year, our dedicated staff have been a constant and comforting presence providing crucial supports, finding creative ways to connect individuals with their families and communities, and navigating the evolving landscape of public health restrictions to keep people healthy and safe. The Skills Society Board thanks you for the extraordinary work you do, and for going above and beyond to put the people we serve first. We see how you have risen to this incredibly challenging occasion, and we applaud you with our deepest gratitude.

The path through the pandemic has been difficult, and while we are not there yet, hope is on the horizon. As we travel the rest of this road together, the Skills Society family is strengthened in the knowledge that you, our dedicated staff, are there. Thank you for lighting the way with your perseverance, kindness, and courage.

With sincere thanks,

The Skills Society Board
