Protecting The Well-Being Of Our Communities

From Our Executive Director:
“Out of an abundance of caution and consideration of CDC guidelines related to this virus and the population we serve, the ADAW has made the decision to cancel all in-person groups and educational programming until further notice. Please see our virtual events at the bottom of this column. Now is the best time to act in ways that can slow the spread of the virus.”
