COVID-19 Update

Effective March 30, 2020, the SARC Head Office in Saskatoon will be closed to the public. SARC staff continue to work from their home offices and can be contacted directly via email or their work phone numbers. If you have a need for service or support through our office and aren’t sure who to reach out to, please email contact@sarcan.sk.ca, and we will connect you with the right member of the team. 

We know how difficult this time is for community-based organizations, but through it comes inspiring stories of communities coming together to, however possible, help each other out. Whether that’s delivering groceries to people with accessibility needs or finding creative solutions to remain active with the people they support, people are coming together around the world to stay connected. While we understand that finding solutions to this new temporary norm might be challenging, know that the SARC network is here for you. Reaching out to each other can help us all get through this. If you have come up with new ideas for how to remain active within your organization or have examples of working with other Members to keep services going, and feel comfortable sharing them, we would love to hear about it – contact Amy Janzen at ajanzen@sarcan.sk.ca. With your permission, we will share that information in our weekly e-newsletter. By doing this, people who may not know where to look or what to do right now may find inspiration from you. 

Please note that SARC remains committed to serving our Members. While many of us at the SARC office have transitioned to working remotely in order to practice social distancing, we are still available by email and are monitoring our work voice mails, in order to be accessible to you. For now, service impacts are as follows: 

  • All SARC training events scheduled between now and May 31, 2020 have been cancelled or postponed – all registrants have been notified.  For training events with dates after May 31, we will be assessing as things progress and will keep our Members informed. 

  • SARC’s four regional meetings scheduled throughout the month of April will no longer take place as an in-person format; please await information coming soon about holding these meetings by Zoom video conference – we will be holding two meetings instead of four, so the date for your region may change as a result. 

Stay healthy. Stay connected.
