I would like to extend a sincere thank you to all of you who joined us and participated in our telephone town hall co-hosted by myself and Chicago Department of Family and Support Services Commissioner Lisa Morrison Butler.
This is a critical time for all our senior residents, and we are committed to continuing to provide you with reliable updates and information so that you can stay safe and healthy during this unprecedented time.
During the call we covered a large amount of information outlining the robust response and the critical resources that AARP and the city have available for you at this time. It is our goal that no residents, especially those that are more vulnerable, go without the goods and services they need during this time. This includes, but is certainly not limited to – food, medicine, care, shelter and more.To date, here are the steps that we’ve already taken to assist our most vulnerable residents during this time:
