TFP and TFPPCS: Commited with the safety of our community against Covid-19
Updated: Oct 25, 2021
We are proud to announce that all of our staff and contractors are fully vaccinated. The health and safety of our staff, participants and students are a priority to us. Therefore, we are working every day to provide a safe environment for them.
We encourage all participants and students to be vaccinated. To achieve this goal, we have provided opportunities and support to help them get the vaccine and counter misinformation about the vaccine.
The Family Place held an informative Q&A session about the vaccine for our students with Dr. Audrey Escobedo, a local physician who has received multiple awards for her contributions to the Hispanic community in DC. Dr. Escobedo has won two Emmy awards for her health TV program on Telemundo and is the recipient of a Community Service Award in DC. After the information session, many students expressed more confidence in registering and getting the vaccine.
Since January 2021, our case managers have helped 42 participants make vaccine appointments.
