In the past few months, thousands of Cobb residents have been affected either directly or indirectly by Covid-19. At the Cobb Collaborative, we have taken the necessary precautions to mitigate the spread of the disease by working remotely, offering resources online, and postponing or virtualizing any in person trainings and workshops. We want to first and foremost say “thank you” to our members for continuing to improve outcomes for children and families and engaging in digital dialogues. Your work has not gone unnoticed, and we are honored to be a part of the effort that the community is making to come together and fight not only the Covid-19 public health crisis, but the job insecurity, mental health issues, and general uncertainty our families are facing. We are grateful for partners like you that have shared close to 100 resources for our Covid-19 Resource Page on the Cobb Collaborative website. Our reach and impact is strong, but only because of all of you.
The Cobb Collaborative plans to resume some socially distant, in-person programming in August. As we know, plans can easily change, and we are continuing to take precautions to navigate the best practices for ensuring effective resources are offered in the safest way possible. We appreciate your patience as we operate in a time of response instead of one of expectation. Our organization will continue to offer many virtual opportunities throughout this time, and we appreciate your feedback and suggestions for the methods of delivery that best serve you. Additionally, please keep in mind that our organization will need to continue in depth reporting and you may be asked to participate in surveys after both digital and in-person trainings. We greatly appreciate your participation and know that they will help us to continue to provide improved services to you in the future.
Again, we cannot thank you enough for the support, effort, and collaboration you have all demonstrated in the midst of adversity. It has been an honor to see our community step up, even more than ever. We are reminded that this moment is temporary, but its effects are not. Thank you for being willing
