Dear community,

As you may know, Mayor Walsh has declared a public health emergency in the City of Boston, and Governor Baker is ordering all Massachusetts schools closed, all restaurants to only offer take-out or delivery, and he has prohibited gatherings with more than 25 people. The COVID-19 situation has escalated and continues to evolve on an hourly basis.

The health and safety of our team, residents, and community are of paramount importance to us. Therefore, starting on Tuesday, March 17, Urban Edge will shift our day-to-day operations from our Jackson Square HQ to our staff working remotely from home until April 15th.

We will continue carrying out our mission and responding to the evolving needs of families in our community. If you need help, check out our directory and reach out to the appropriate person: https://www.urbanedge.org/about/staff/. If you are in need of resources in the community, please click here for more information as it becomes available to us: https://www.urbanedge.org/press/resources/

We will continue to monitor the situation as it evolves and determine if we should take further action regarding programs, events, meetings, and day-to-day operations. As many other organizations are, we are asking our residents, employees, neighbors, and community we serve to follow the guidelines from the Massachusetts Department of Public Health and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.

We wish you all continued good health.
