In response to the rapidly changing information and circumstances with respect to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and the City's primary recommendation to slow the spread of the coronavirus is to reduce close contact with others, modify, cancel or postpone events, RAICES is taking this recommendation very seriously.
After careful consideration and deliberation, we have made the difficult decision to end all social activities at our centers/social clubs until further notice. The decision is part of the effort to mitigate the spread of Coronavirus and the security of all our participants and the community at large is of utmost importance. This was not an easy decision, but it was largely based on older adults and people with compromised immune systems facing higher risks of contracting the disease and/or experiencing complications. Also, the CDC declaring that older adults should “stay at home as much as possible” played a key role in our decision.

RAICES’ Board of Directors, Management Team and staff are in agreement that this is necessary to protect the safety and well-being of our staff, participants and community.
Please be assured that we have created a contingency plan which includes ways in which staff will work remotely, remain connected with our participants and monitor their wellbeing during this pandemic.
Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, activities at all RAICES’ sites are temporarily suspended until further notice. However, our staff is working remotely.
If you need assistance, please contact the RAICES center closest to your home or call 311. .
Stay safe by staying home.
While we are facing unprecedented circumstances, we know that together we will get through this.
Thank you for your continued support.
