Following the advice and directives of Toronto Public Health, the Province and the Prime Minister’s office, Springboard has enacted measures to protect the safety of our clients, staff and community and do our part to slow the spread of COVID-19. As such, Springboard employees that are able to, are working from home and where possible, some programs have been temporarily adapted to operate virtually. Springboard provides essential services at our Youth Justice and Developmental Services residences, additional preventative measures have been enacted, including limiting visitors and other measures as outlined by Toronto Public Health.
We have enacted contingency plans to ensure both clients and staff are receiving the support they need, including redeployment for employees. Employment Services, Developmental Services, and Community Justice & Diversion Services have contacted all clients directly to inform them of program changes. Staff will continue to provide support to clients who require it, virtually or by phone.
