Virus Forces Facility-Based Program Suspension

With the health and safety of the individuals we serve – and the staff who support them – as our foremost priority, Carey Services has made the decision to suspend facility-based programming until April 17.

The individuals we serve will continue to receive the support needed to remain as safe and independent as possible in this unprecedented time in the communities we serve. Staff members will continue to provide support in residential settings and will empower the individuals served to heed the many recommendations that they remain at home and avoid all but truly essential travel.

This programming suspension covers all day-service programming in Marion – including the production facility and Creative Hearts Art Studio – and day-service programming in Wabash and Logansport. The Early Head Start program was already scheduled for its annual spring break starting Monday, but it, too, will remain closed after the week-long break until April 17.

All operations at Carey Services’ entire Marion campus will be suspended during this time, with that April 17 date subject to change based on community conditions.

“On behalf of the Carey Services board of directors, Carey Services has always placed the health and safety of the individuals we support as a major priority, along with our employees,” said Board Chairperson Kevin Planck. “We believe the best decisions are being made for all parties involved during this health crisis and for the long-term stability of the organization. We look toward the future with hope and wonder and wish comfort on you, our employees and their families, and our wonderful families that we support.”
