Eight full time jobs, 6 part time jobs, and over $250,000.00 estimated annual wages were saved during COVID. The use of these funds allowed our staff to continue to work remotely and provide services to veterans in need during a very intense and difficult time. We did not need to lay off anyone due to inability to complete work functions for tasks, which we truly appreciate. The staff became accustomed to more remote-work options while still serving clients in a safe manner. That has been invaluable as the pandemic restrictions have continued and will continue for some time.
