The BHH Corona Chronicles

Scientists tell us that a virus is not a living organism, but this “Novel Coronavirus” has at times seemed not only alive but intelligent, even diabolical, in how it has brought an entire civilization to its knees.  Like every other organization, BHH’s operations have been severely affected by the collective defensive measures that have been required. As an essential service provider, we have had to find ways of meeting the increased needs of our community despite the restrictions. If there is a silver lining to be found anywhere in this cloud of catastrophe, it may be that the lessons we are learning are likely to improve the efficiency and impact of our programs in the future.
