Reopening Guidelines Notice
July 30th, 2020

Community Services for Every1 resumed their site-based services on Monday, July 27, 2020 to the following programs:

  • Pre-Vocational Services
  • Day Habilitation for external IRAs and those who reside in the community or with family
  • Overnight Respite at our Dixon location
  • Respite Camp at Dixon

Please note, as we continue with our reopening plans, we are maintaining a reduced capacity for those who need the face to face service most, and will continue to expand our numbers safely as it makes sense.  For all those not receiving face to face services, we are offering virtual and telehealth services. 

For those who receive support in their home or Community based setting, i.e. Behavioral supports, community habilitation, contracts, behavioral health, victims advocacy and self-direction, We have continued to provide these services offering virtual, telehealth and face to face where determined safe and appropriate.

The agency established Reopening Guidelines for our offices, sites, home and community-based programs in line with the NYS Forward Template for Safe Opening. They are available on the website under the COVID-19 link.   

The last few days have been going very well with the new necessary changes. People are especially excited to resume their site-based services, and our team is happy to be providing face to face day services again!

Our team at Community Services has been dedicated to staying up to date on all information from OPWDD, NYS Health Department, Erie County Health Department, and the CDC. We will continue to make necessary changes to this document and all others. The safety and well-being of those we support and our employees are of the utmost importance to us. As such, it is imperative that the re-opening offices and program sites employees, visitors, and services recipients abide by all safety precautions as noted in the guidelines and posted at the office locations.

Should you have any questions or concerns regarding our reopening plans and guidelines, please contact us via email at COVID19@csevery1.com, or contact our compliance line at 716-883-8888, Ext 707.  For program/individual specific questions please reach out directly to the Program Directors.
