New Task Force Works to Re-open ACBVI Safer

  • Thursday November 12th, 2020

Members to examine best practices in public, private sectors

A high-level task force will deliver recommendations this fall about how to serve more clients and re-open the ACBVI building in a phased approach. Neighborhood Resource Director for the City of Chandler Leah Powell is leading the effort. 

The task force will examine “safer” ways to conduct our in-person programs. “We offer interventions and skills that change people’s lives for the better,” said Executive Director Steve Tepper. 

We shut down our building in mid-March as Arizona declared a public health emergency. Over the last few months, we introduced some virtual activities and allowed limited building access to small groups that used mask and social distancing protocols.

Task force members will need to consider the safety of nearly 3,000 ACBVI clients, many of whom have high-risk health conditions. They’re expected to examine best practices from similar nonprofits, as well as examples from the private and public sectors.
