To our amazing community:

As COVID-19 continues to impact our community and the world, we wanted to take a moment to share what is being done at BroadFutures to ensure the safety and well-being of our staff and interns. Our team is currently working remotely, and we will continue to reevaluate the situation on a week by week basis. While we are not in our physical office, this does not mean we are reducing our support system. If anything, we are committed now more than ever to ensure each intern feels supported in this challenging time.

The BroadFutures mission is to unlock the potential of young people with learning disabilities. This is our chance to demonstrate that even in times of uncertainty, our interns are capable of rising to the occasion and demonstrating their courage and resilience. BroadFutures is here to provide resources and support, and it is in that spirit that we write to you today.

To our interns and families:
Know that we are here for you! Whether you are working from home or still going into the office, please know that we are still 100% dedicated to continuing to support you in your internship and professional development. You have our emails - use them! If you have any questions at all, or just need some positive words of encouragement, our team is ready to help in any way we can. 

To our supporters and friends:
We need you! This is a time for us to come together as a community, and to offer assistance to each other in any way we can. It is clear that the crisis has had a huge impact on the economy, and the ripple effect on philanthropy and fundraising is uncertain at best. At this time we intend to continue our summer program, but are cognizant of the possibility it may be smaller than in summers past, or worst case scenario, we may have to delay the program in its entirety. Coupled on top of the uncertainty that arises from the present COVID-19 crisis, unfortunately last week BroadFutures was the victim of a theft. Our MacBook laptops were stolen from our office along with a camera and various Apple charging cords. If you are in a position to support our efforts and secure the future of BroadFutures, you can contribute to our mission by making a gift here .

We are learning right alongside you as we navigate COVID-19 together. Everything is dynamic and changing rapidly and we are working diligently to accommodate and incorporate such changes. We are proud of the swift changes our staff is making, and their commitment to our interns, families and employers. The safety and health of our community is our #1 priority, and we are fiercely committed to ensuring that as well for the growth of our interns. 

Thank you for being a valued part of our community. We are confident we can all work through this present crisis with grace and courage, hopefully coming out the other side having grown together. As always, please feel free to reach out to us with any questions or thoughts.
