Letter from DeColores Adoption Agency on COVID-19 Actions
I don’t think any of us have ever experienced a situation quite like this one. The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has affected virtually every American, upended the engines of commerce, closed schools and some businesses, and disrupted the rhythms of our daily lives.
In these times no one is more scared than a pregnant woman.
At Decolores we understated the added steps that must take place to ensure the health of both mom and baby. We have taken extra precautions in our housing and have secured the necessary supplies needed throughout the pregnancy.
Our path forward
One of DeColores’ core values is to Be There when people need us. And we can’t do that when our employees are sick. A simple, effective way to minimize risk is to maximize social distance. So last Friday, we implemented a sweeping work-from-home policy. If any Decolores employee can work from home, they will.
In these situations, it is our mission to prioritize and serve the critical needs required when pregnant.
Staying safe on the frontlines
Our adoption specialists play a critical role in the adoption process. While their mission is essential to keep our birth-moms connected, we also recognize that there is a balance between providing service and keeping everyone safe. To accomplish that balance, we’re providing them with new policies and procedures, so they feel comfortable serving your needs.
I want you to know that DeColores Adoptions will continue to do everything we can do to help. I truly believe that together we can help slow the spread of the coronavirus and lessen its impact. And once we do that, it is only a matter of time before we get our communities back to normal.
Thank you for your patience and understanding as we work through this challenge together.
