According to Vancouver Coastal Health, the risk of contracting COVID-19 in BC remains low, and people without symptoms do not pose a risk. However, the emerging importance of social distancing is an element that is difficult to manage within programs and it is with this in mind that we are temporarily closing our programs and our thrift store out of an abundance of caution for clients, staff, volunteers to ensure everyone’s wellness.

- All RFP families who have been faced with challenges that are extreme in scope and nature.
- The remarkable transition, effectively undertaken by our staff, prioritizing the best interests of families and looking out for each other.
- RFP staff, both who went into the office and and working remotely, who are making all of these efforts happen across family services, building operations, planning, communications, human resources and central administration.
- And, last but not least, the leadership team, including our Executive Director Janice Lambert, for the incredible job of helping to plan for the unexpected and ensuring that the crisis does not divert from the RFP mission to ensure that every child in Richmond reaches their full potential. We recognize that much of the heavy burden and responsibility for coordinating the planning for and response to this crisis has fallen to you and thank you for your incredible leadership during this unprecedented time.
