Response to Covid-19

Dear Friends of Work Opportunities,

Communities are being significantly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Over the last couple weeks, we have all been working together creating a new normal. We are in new times, working to create a sense of stability. Our staff and board have been incredibly responsive to the needs of our clients, navigating daily changes in the community.

Work Opportunities provides essential supported employment services to nearly 450 people with disabilities in Snohomish, King and Whatcom Counties. Many of the clients we all care about, cannot risk their already compromised health.  And many that can and want to go to work, have seen their businesses shut down.  When we are unable to provide services to these clients, we lose funding. 

While our offices are closed and staff are working remotely, we remain committed providing services to those who are still able and needing to work.

Our communities are strong and we know we will all come through these difficult times, however, we can’t do it alone. Below you will see some of the immediate effects of the pandemic on Work Opportunities. Thank you for your understanding and the care you show people with disabilities and our community.

When this epidemic is over, we want to have a solid foundation to continue our services to the people who need them most. You can help today!

Your action is needed now!  Our Board of Directors released funds in an emergency meeting and are challenging you to do the same by sending in your gift today.
