Dear KDC Community,

In keeping with our stay at home order from Governor Baker, we have closed our programs and offices throughout the state. Please contact us by email kdcinfo@kdc.org or phone at 508-772-1200 if you have any questions. Thank you for your patience and understanding.


3/17/2020 Announcement:

Dear KDC Community,
 
Within the last few days, we have had many conversations about doing our part to reduce community exposure to the coronavirus (COVID-19). The health and safety of our staff, and the individuals we serve, is our top priority, so we have made the decision to temporarily suspend all home-based visits for the remainder of the week.
 
We are actively following the guidelines and recommendations as outlined by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), as well as local health authorities, including Massachusetts Department of Public Health (Mass DPH).
 
Staff who conduct home-based visits have been informed that they can make the call on whether to go or reschedule any sessions this morning. For now, our plan is deploying telehealth options for Early Intervention, Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA), and Foster Care as soon as possible.
 
This situation remains fluid and we will navigate this situation together as a community. Our response will be adjusted accordingly with official guidance from public health officials. We thank you for your support, and we will keep you informed as we take any additional actions to protect the health of our employees and those we serve.
 

Stay well,

N. Paul TonThat
Chief Executive Officer

 

3/16/2020 Announcement:

Dear KDC Community,

In an effort to be proactive following Governor Charlie Baker’s updates yesterday, we are closing both our Day Habilitation Program and Special Education School. This is not yet required by the state of Massachusetts. However, as conditions evolve, we want to take precautionary measures to mitigate exposure to the coronavirus (COVID-19).

The health and well-being of those we serve, the dedicated staff who serve them, and all members of our Kennedy-Donovan Center community is of the upmost importance.

We will continue to carefully follow the guidelines set forth by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Mass Department of Public Health (Mass DPH) to help control the spread of the virus. Additionally, the coronavirus situation will be monitored and any other appropriate adjustments to our program management and availability of services will appear on social media and our website.

With much gratitude,

N. Paul TonThat
Chief Executive Officer
