May 14, 2020 | 2:00 p.m. Eastern | 11:00 a.m. Pacific (1.0 hours)
Join us as we begin to talk about what the next step of delivering services looks like. This webinar will focus on things to keep in mind when deciding how to open back up, financial considerations, and what services will look like. Will discuss staffing, families, in-person programming, virtual programming, revenue streams, and making a seamless transition. No one has the answers to the best way to do things, but please join us as we bring up things to think about in planning what is best for your community.
