´╗┐THE NEIGHBORHOOD
March / April 2020

Responding to COVID-19
 
Thank you for your many expressions of concern and support as we work through these challenging times. Like you, we are adapting to ensure we conform to best practices and stay safe. In keeping with current directives about gathering, we are putting several events on hold (see below).
 
Amidst all this uncertainty, we have been heartened by examples of extraordinary kindness and generosity. People are looking out for each other. That includes some of our dedicated Community Life staff, who made sure that free meals are directly available to families in need on-site at MHP's Pembridge Community Center site in Wheaton, through a partnership with Montgomery County Public School and Arcola Elementary School.  Among many initiatives, they also are engaged in extensive outreach to our families and have launched innovative approaches to continue the learning process for our students at a distance.
 
Our Neighborhoods Department has been hard at work developing resource guides for our residents and supporting businesses in the Long Branch and Bonifant communities. There are many more initiatives underway as well. You can read about a local business helping senior residents of MHP's The Bonifant in Silver Spring below.
 
During these difficult times, please know that we remain committed to doing what is needed to support our communities and carry out MHP's mission:
  • We set up a COVID-19 resource page on our website; and
  • We have established a dedicated fund to address our residents' emergency needs. Many are feeling the impacts of loss of employment or reductions in working hours. You can help these families by donating here. 
As always, we are deeply grateful for your steadfast support. Stay safe!
 
 
Robert A. Goldman
MHP President
