We hold with great pride the culture we have built within our team over the years – one of trust, respect, and integrity. This unique culture has created an organization that cares deeply for the customers and communities we serve. We see our work as HEARTwork.
Today we are living through an ever-changing environment with the rapid spread of the COVID-19 pandemic. It is unsettling and concerning for all and our heartfelt thoughts go to those who have been impacted by the virus. We are taking prudent steps to protect the safety and well-being of our staff, partners, and customers. Steps taken to date include:
With information changing moment by moment, our leadership team and Human Resources are monitoring the advice provided by the Center for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC), World Health Organization (WHO), and Washington State Department of Health and its Regional Departments to ensure we are working with the most current information at all times.
While there are many unknowns, there is one certainty that we hold onto; we have a strong team of dedicated employees who have already risen to the challenge and will continue to do so. How we work and how we deliver services will change and it will require all of us to modify our behaviors. Our commitment is to communicate with our staff and customers about changes as they occur.
We are working with our partners to determine the appropriate steps for each area and region where we work. Information will be updated here, on our website daily and through our social media accounts. It will be organized by region, office, and program. Thank you for your patience as we all work together to reduce the spread of COVID-19.
