Renaissance’s COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Response


To reduce the risk of exposure for our participants & staff, most staff will be working remotely until further notice. Participants needing assistance from their case managers should call them directly. We are still available during normal work hours via email and phone, and we will continue our work to support our participants during this challenging time.

How You Can Help Renaissance: Because of the need to maximize social distance, Renaissance has cancelled all fundraising events until at least the summer. This, combined with expected shifts in institutional funding, means that Renaissance needs to raise money to support our ongoing efforts to respond to the crisis.
