A Message from EHOC’s Executive Director:
In response to COVID-19, I wanted to share what EHOC is doing to ensure the health and well-being of our clients, staff, volunteers, partners, and the larger community. Please know that our number one priority is to continue to provide vital client services in a safe and responsible way. We want to ensure our clients, staff, volunteers and community partners will not suffer loss of service, or be placed at-risk of exposure.
Beginning Monday, March 16, staff and interns will be working remotely. Fortunately, many of our systems and procedures are already in place to ensure that EHOC remains functional. However, we will not be accepting walk-in clients at this time. Our telephones and voicemails will be forwarded and checked regularly. Please continue to contact us at 314-534-5800. You can reach staff and interns at the appropriate extension, as well as the Landlord Tenant hotline and the Discrimination hotline. We will be utilizing conference calls and videoconferencing options to hold meetings. You can also reach staff over email. Our email addresses are always our first initial last name @ehoc-stl.org. For example, [email protected],
We are not scheduling any fair housing trainings, presentations, or events. We will defer to partner organizations policies and procedures for any existing trainings that may go on or be cancelled.
We are closely monitoring the situation to determine if EHOC’s annual fair housing conference will continue on April 24. We are in communication with the Missouri History Museum and our speakers and hope to make a decision in the next few weeks. We will update you on our decision as soon as possible over social media and email.
Please feel free to contact me directly if you have any questions or concerns. Thank you for working with us as we navigate this time. I hope you and your family stay safe and healthy.
