Three jobs and $78,000.00 estimated annual wages were saved during COVID. The Senior Center had to close our facility and satellite sites due to the pandemic and that meant staff (primarily counselors) did not have office space from which to service seniors (the population most devastated by the Coronavirus). The grant allowed us to set up home based offices for the counselors which means they can continue to serve seniors virtually or telephonically. That preserved both the service to the seniors and the counselor positions.
