CANCELLED/Lunch Meeting

Hello VCHA Members,

In a time of ordered isolation we at VCHA would like to provide a sense of connection and community to all of our members. I know right now there are those who feel cut off from their normal way of life, but at the same time feel more in tune with what is happening around the world than ever. As we keep our care community strong, it is the bonds we have through VCHA that can continue to provide resources and support. I have had various people request assistance for needs ranging from food resources and childcare to behavioral health and Hospice. These resources often exist among our membership, so please reach out to each other or myself if you have a need. Please click here for the membership directory.

Per the Shelter in Place and Social Distancing guidelines, the VCHA meeting for April has been cancelled. If you have educational information to share with our membership, please feel free to send it to me via email.

On behalf of the VCHA Board and Officer Team, as we continue our national and worldwide fight of Covid-19, please keep yourself and your families safe and we look forward to seeing you all soon.

Amanda Larson, VCHA President
