A message from Dr. Glenn Motola, PSY.D., CEO, Reimagine
While we’re ready to breathe a sigh of relief for the end of this year and make a fresh start, I want to acknowledge all the good we accomplished together at Reimagine in 2020.
COVID-19 disrupted our in-person services and programming, which presented innumerable challenges to the Reimagine community and our participants. But in the face of such unexpected circumstances, we came together to make the quick and necessary adjustments to continue serving our participants safely. During this difficult year, Reimagine:
- Transitioned to online programming to support participants’ physical and mental wellness
- Began care package deliveries containing at-home Reimagine activities
- Established safe, appointment-based in-person physical, occupational and speech therapies
- Safety precautions and measures are in place to continue to provide in person services forchildren
- Prepared our state-of-the-art Reimagine building to open in 2021
I am immensely grateful for and inspired by the dedication of the Reimagine staff, our participants and our caregivers. It takes focus and determination to fight through the obstacles that were placed in our path this year. But you did it, you’re still doing it, and this is what gives me hope for 2021. I am equally thankful for our strong community of friends and donors who were integral in making this year a success when the odds were stacked against us.
While 2021 will be full of its own challenges as we work our way toward in-person care, we are more than ready to take them on. The creativity and commitment of our staff continues to motivate us as a whole to keep striving to unlock new possibilities.
Such hopeful determination, put to work in our new building in Santa Ana, will be a powerful combination in helping participants reach new heights in learning and development. The Santa Ana location features a world-class adapted fitness center for participants of all abilities and an array of advanced programming designed for optimal personalized learning. To help ensure the safety of participants and staff, we’ve also installed touchless amenities, UV lighting sanitation for infection control and hourly disinfectant fogging to enhance already stringent COVID-19 safety and hygiene protocols.
Your vital support has allowed us to continue our pursuit of the possible. If you would like to make a tax-deductible gift yet this year, or invite a friend to support Reimagine, our Pursuing Possibilities 2020 campaign is still active.
We so appreciate your consideration. Your contribution will help champion a successful start to 2021 for the entire Reimagine community.
All the best for a safe, healthy and happy holiday season,
