HASC Center: Heroes Work Here

Bound and determined, HASC group homes forge on amid COVID-19.

(Courtesy of HASC) Though the world outside is shuttered, HASC Center programs are working full-force. We are forging ahead amid tough obstacles and giving it our all…because in this profession, there is no time off. Shutdown, temporary closures and cautious outlooks have no place in our lexicon—there are people who need us, and we will never let them down.

We want to express our deep appreciation to our staff, who have kept the HASC Center group homes fully operational throughout the current health crisis. In a moving display of dedication, staff moved into the HASC residences to spend quarantine together with our clients. While everyone is fully protected with masks, gowns, gloves and sanitizers for safety, this task is demanding and full-time. Staff members work up to 16 hours a day covering shifts, providing for our clients and coordinating services for each home. The residential area coordinators, managers, nurses and Dayhab staff have worked around the clock to ensure the utmost care for each group home member. Our routine goes on, with bustling activity, safe entertainment and stimulation, in dramatic contrast to the stillness outside.

The heroism of our staff has become apparent in these challenging times. And as Shlomo Zakheim, zt”l, a generous supporter of HASC, used to say, ”Tough times don’t last—tough people do.” At HASC Center, our team has demonstrated and continues to demonstrate extraordinary grit and devotion, working against all odds and never, ever faltering.

To all of our wonderful, hardworking staff: You are true heroes. Your stamina and spirit are inspiring. We are forever grateful.
