Our First Priority…

Assisting Reconcile Interns & Alumni During These Uncertain Times

The recent COVID-19 public health crisis has forced us all to consider our part in keeping our community safe. At Reconcile, our first priority are our young people and the more than 1,800 Alumni we care for in our community. Many of them are employed by the hospitality industry and will feel the effects staff scale backs or lay-offs. Our team is reaching out, keeping our communication lines open, and ensuring they know we are here to help them get through this experience.

We need your help to be there for them.

How can you help?

Dine in the Café next week.  In the Café, the safety of our young people and guests are a top priority. To be sure we’re doing our part, we’re taking several precautionary measures in our restaurant and catering operations:

Frequent and thorough hand washing. We are reinforcing with Team Members vigilant hand washing before, continuously throughout, and after their shifts.

Team Member health.  All Team Members (Interns and Staff) experiencing any flu-like symptoms must stay home and take advantage of our paid sick leave policy. Interns are assisted in navigating community medical services to ensure they receive proper care and treatment.

Sanitation and cleanliness. We have increased the frequency of cleaning and disinfecting our restaurant, with special attention to high-contact surfaces, such as chairs, tables, and registers, to ensure our space remains open to serve you with the highest standard of cleanliness.

Why is it important to dine?

When you eat at Café Reconcile you’re not just feeding your body, you’re changing a life. Every meal we serve, every catering order we deliver – all prepared with the highest standard of cleanliness possible – supports the vital wrap around social and mental health services that support our young people.

Can’t make it in to the Café but want to ensure services?

Reconcile’s Client Assistance Fund provides essential resources to help our young people bridge life’s gaps when times get hard. In addition to our dedicated program team that includes a social worker and mental health counselor, this fund allows us the ability to put a safe roof over their head when they have nowhere safe to sleep at night, rent when they may have lost a job, put food on the table, and access to mental health counseling.

Help us build a safety net of hope and love.

We expect the demand for these supports will increase in the coming weeks. Our young people need you to show up so they know they aren’t alone. Help us build a safety net of hope and love by donating to Reconcile’s Client Assistance Fund today.
