As our country continues to manage the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and we continue to work to keep our loved ones safe, I hope you take comfort in knowing that Rite of Passage’s leadership team is closely monitoring guidelines regarding COVID-19 and working diligently with all stakeholders and best practices to protect our employees and the youth and communities that we serve. This includes actively communicating with state and federal health officials and adhering to their recommendations.
ROP’s priority in addressing this crisis remains the safety, health and well-being of our staff and the youth in our care. ROP’s established pandemic plan is currently being implemented at all sites and includes enhanced measures to disinfect facilities, screen visitors, monitor staff and students with flu-like symptoms, reinforce health and hygiene protocols and reduce non-essential interactions with the community-at-large.
ROP’s programs exist to deliver critical services to vulnerable youth. The kids in our communities still have needs—and we will continue to serve them with the utmost care. The best way to ensure your own health is to follow health authority best practices and to stay informed through credible and verified sources such as the CDC and WHO.
ROP is grateful for the selflessness, professionalism and dedication of our staff who are continuing to work and provide vital and essential services to their communities and the country. Regardless of the challenges that lie ahead, our mission remains the same—improving the lives of youth, families, and communities.
President and CEO
