Important Work and Day Program Update


April 27, 2020


Dear Employees/Participants Receiving Services and Families,

We hope this email finds you and your loved ones safe, happy, and healthy.

Previously, we communicated that our Work and Day Programs would tentatively return on Monday, May 4, 2020. However, given that the stay-at-home order remains in effect, our new tentative return-to-program date is Tuesday, May 26, 2020, which is the day after Memorial Day.

We miss you all and are disappointed that we won’t see one another in person come May 4. PRIDE continues to work with the regional centers and follows guidance from state and federal governments on when to open the centers. Our top priority is to keep everyone safe and healthy, and we continue to hope that soon it will be safe to be together again.

Luckily, the remote services have been going well, and the feedback has been positive. It’s a joy to see everyone on Facebook Live and Zoom. If you have any ideas related to remote services, please share them with your case manager.

As a reminder, here are the important help resources available to you:

• If you have questions about unemployment or social security benefits, contact our PRIDE Helpline at (877) 242-4928.

• You may also contact your case manager for assistance and support. To view a list of all case managers and their contact information, visit

• To the extent possible, PRIDE case managers will continue to stay connected with you to provide updates on our services. We’ll communicate via remote electronic communications, such as Zoom, Facebook Live, video conference, or telephone conference.

• Of course, you may also contact me at (916) 813-4337 or, or Rehabilitation Compliance Manager Dawn Horwath at (530) 308-3589 (work), (530) 648-4047 (cell) or, with any questions or concerns.

It’s important that we keep our spirits up and maintain a positive attitude. Spring is here, the sun is shining, and the flowers are blooming. This situation will not last forever.

We are grateful to work with you. Stay well.
