Setbacks and challenges are difficult to overcome. We’ve all had them. Sometimes, however, it leads to unexpected opportunities and new ways of looking at things. That’s what’s happened at Community Partners in Caring. The pandemic has been a challenge, but it caused us to, among other things, establish new services, develop social media volunteer recruitment campaigns, develop partnerships with other non-profits and with for-profit organizations to serve seniors during COVID, implement new web-based platforms to onboard new volunteers, and it forced us into remote work for almost all of 2020 and half of 2021.
