Although hope is rising that the end of the COVID-19 pandemic is coming, it's still not over. The last year has been emotionally and sometimes financially draining to nearly everyone, but the people of our community’s hospitals have been on the front lines the entire time.

However, innovation can be the brainchild of crisis, and the pandemic has presented other opportunities including the discovery of resiliency.
The COVID-19 pandemic finally, painfully enters 2021 with fresh hope as a vaccine for COVID-19 becomes more widely available, but the effects of the pandemic on area nonprofits still linger as they close in on a full year of serving the community in challenging circumstances including a growth in community needs, superhuman demands on staff, and a reduction in support.
