Q10. Negative Impacts from COVID-19:

Archway Station has been in business for 40 years providing residential and in-home supports.  We had to close several programs in that we could not provide the necessary services which also resulted in the furlough of some employees.  Archway in its history had never had furloughs.  We further downsized and had to attrition some positions.  The income in several programs has suffered due to having to provide services telephonic.  When people had unlimited plans it was not a problem but those who have limited access to governmental phones are not willing to utilize their minutes of service for our contacts and supports.

We also have persons who use our services who have increased mental health problems resulting in an improved need for services.

Q11. Top Three Concerns:
We worry about the health and safety of those served. We have had one suicide and one natural cause (unknown) death during COVID.
We have lost service users resulting in reduced revenue but concern for those people not receiving services.
We are having problems retaining staff due to concerns of steady employment.

How Participation in Program Will Address Concerns:

I am familiar with ARC and the region served and the overall economic impact the Appalachian funding has provided for distressed regions.  We have been working to strengthen our partnerships with other organizations to get a greater ability to serve the community.  We hope to learn of funding methodologies that serve nonprofits within the region from those experts who have provided more diversified services in other parts of the region and in other impoverished communities.
