During these challenging and uncertain times, IAR mobilized for rapid response against COVID-19 and its devastating impact. Under the leadership of our Founder, board, volunteers, and mentors we expanded and extended programs and services remotely. In an effort to check on and service some of our neediest participants, we visited many of them in their residence, safely using social distancing techniques and also communicated via mobile telephone with families in crisis intervention. IAR has been working consistently to address the pandemic’s impact while continuing to tackle structural challenges during this crisis.
