Dear Extension Supporter,

As a valued member of the Extension family, I appreciate the trust you place in us to work with homeless men and women to recover from their addiction and become whole, productive members of the Cobb County community. That’s why we want to personally update you on the situation with COVID-19 (the coronavirus) and the steps we are taking to ensure the health and safety of our residents, staff, and volunteers.

For the past month, we at the Extension have been updating our protocols, systems and procedures to ensure as sanitary and efficient residential space as possible. Since we provide half the residential treatment beds in Cobb County, we have strong relationships in place with health experts including the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), Cobb County Public Health, and Wellstar Kennestone Hospital. As well as our own in-house Medical Director.  We are in constant contact with them to make sure our policies and procedures meet or exceed their guidelines.

We have activated our Pandemic Contingency Plan as a precautionary step in response to COVID-19. Our Plan follows guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and state and local public health authorities.

To protect all those you come here to serve and to be served, we are asking that volunteers and visitors reschedule their visit to a later time.

Thank you for your continued trust in and support of the Extension. This community support is invaluable and irreplaceable to our mission.

If you have any questions, concerns or just want to say “Hi” please do not hesitate to call us at (770) 590-9075.

All our best,

Tyler M. Driver
Executive Director
