Hi from your Central Alberta FASD Network Team!
We at the Central Alberta FASD Network are taking the recommended precautions about COVID-19 very seriously and are all working from home these days, social distancing, and self isolating where need be.
Despite being away from one another we are still finding ways to stay connected. We touch base regularly via Zoom, Facebook, phone calls, emails etc. We, as a team, connect professionally for a variety of reasons, but we also recognize that we miss that social connection with one another as well.
Social distancing is important right now, but It is also important to find ways to stay connected with other people. Even self-proclaimed introverts need some type of interaction. Find what works for you, but do find ways to connect, whether it be Facetime chatting on Messenger, a phone call with a loved one, virtual group meetings, etc. We’ve posted some articles as resources at the bottom of this post.
We also want to assure you that we are still going strong as a network (#unstoppabletogether) and we are here to connect with as well. We are just a voice or message away.
You can reach out to us by phone (403)342-7499 (Make sure you leave a voicemail so we know you called and we can get back to you), email (our emails are available on our website under ‘Our Team’), Facebook (Central Alberta FASD Network), and twitter (CentralAlbertaFASD).
Take care and we’ll connect soon!
From, The Central Alberta FASD Network
