Dear Byrd Barr Place Community,

As the impacts of COVID-19 continue to escalate, we are updating you on how we are approaching this pandemic.

We continue to place human health and safety first, as we always have since our founding in 1964.  During this time, we are guided by CDC and WHO recommendations for appropriate procedures for our staff, clients and everyone we interact with.  We are utilizing careful social distancing, and thorough sanitization at both the personal and facility level, to keep everyone as safe as possible.

In addition, we remain committed to providing continued services to people in need, from rental assistance to foodbank and energy assistance in ways that are the most accessible.

At a time when in-person interactions are impossible, it is more important that we provide a means of service, connection and care and we are committed to doing our best to continue to deliver that experience.

Please call during operating hours at 206.812.4940 or visit us here, at our website any time.

Once again, we wish to assure you that we are deeply and personally committed to the well-being of our community, and to fulfilling our promise to be here in your time of greatest need.  We thank you for your support and for being a very important part of what we believe makes Byrd Barr Place.

With sincere wishes for health and safety to all,

Byrd Barr Place Team!
