Yesterday, US District Court issued a temporary injunction against the harmful public charge rule that discouraged immigrant families from accessing public services. As a reminder, Head Start was never listed as a benefit that impacted an individual’s public charge determination, but we know families have been fearful of enrolling. ENROLLING IS SAFE AND WAS NEVER IN QUESTION. Read the press release below. Thank you! https://www.nilc.org/2020/07/29/injunctions-block-public-charge-rules-amid-pandemic/

After some 25 years, we are saying so long to our friend Darlene Gallant, the grandam of our Fuel Office. Imagine, 25 years of keeping families and the elderly warm? That's a legacy! Darlene served as our Community Services Director, working with fuel clients through so many changes in process and in the social landscape of the country. Darlene really shined working the elderly food distribution, where everyone knew her by name. She was their person. Darlene served the public with respect and dignity. She was a fierce advocate for fuel funding, even testifying at the State House. You made your mark, D! We are better for our time with you. Happy Retirement! LEO and Lynn will miss you! #thankyou

Being removed from family at this time is painful. It is your right to know how your family is being treated, as well as what precautions facilities are taking to protect them from COVID. #callnowhttps://t.co/WngFFMwrYw
