Dear Friends,

As we enter another month of COVID-19 self-isolation, I want to let you know that you are in our hearts and minds as we navigate this unprecedented and stressful time for which there is no playbook.

I want you to know we are here for you. Right now, Impact Strategies Inc. mission is to serve you in whatever way we can. Whether it’s a (virtual) shoulder to cry on, a listening ear, a friend, or a sounding board for whatever may be on your mind, we are here for you.

Now more than ever, our inboxes and social media feeds are filled with experts offering advice and services. I will just put this out there – myself and the talented group of professionals that support Impact Strategies Inc. projects are not experts in how to navigate through this pandemic. What we are, is a passionate group of individuals that care about you, those you serve, and our community.

Some of you are asking if or how to move forward with projects or initiatives developed pre-COVID 19. The reality is strategies and tactics designed pre- COVID-19 may no longer apply in today’s environment. If you are facing this question, consider checking out this decision-making tool designed by The Center for Community Investment as a guide to assist you in reimagining strategy in the context of the COVID-19 crisis.

I send my sincerest wishes for safety and well-being for you, your loved ones, your employees, and for those you serve.
