March 26th Staff Update


March 26, 2020

From the Desk Of Jill Warner, CEO

Good evening,

I am truly grateful for all of your efforts in going above and beyond in the midst of this Coronavirus global health emergency. My utmost priority is your health, safety and well-being and the individuals and families we support. 

You and your colleagues are the backbone of Jawonio and you should have the most accurate and up to date information in as real time as possible. 

Beginning next week, I will be hosting Tele-Conference Town Halls for you and your departments.  Tomorrow, you will receive an email with your specific date, time and call-in information.  Prior to our meeting, I ask that you call our new Jawonio Coronavirus InfoLine at 845-708-2020 to leave your questions or concerns on the voicemail or you can submit your questions via email at

What I know for sure is that we have to support each other and check in with each other. During this time, my mantra has been, we are all in this together. Jawonio would not have the outstanding reputation it does throughout Rockland, Westchester and Orange counties, without you.

The only way this Coronavirus global emergency will end--and it will, is to continue to follow universal precautions, wash your hands frequently and maintain social distancing of at least six feet.  Make sure to take care of yourself by eating well, exercising when you can and most importantly, get the rest you need to stay healthy and strong for yourself and your loved ones.

It it is my honor to work side by side with all of you every day. 


With gratitude,
