YWCAMC CEOElija su lenguage en el tabulador de arriva

Dear YWCA Monterey County Friends:

Our offices will be open to the public starting June 15th on a limited basis for the short term.  For the safety of all, we are hoping clients have been vaccinated but if not, we will not refuse services. We are following all public health guidelines and ask our clients to do the same.

We value the health and safety of our staff and clients alike and will continue to ensure a safe workplace informed by science and public health guidelines. This involves stringent office sanitization protocols and flexibility in the midst of a rapidly changing environment.

As external stakeholders, volunteers, and mission-related supporters, we welcome your thoughts. Please feel free to contact us at info@ywcamc.org Your ideas and comments are important as we all move forward together.

Christine Duncan MSW
