COVID update and work from home update:

CMMB has developed guidelines to inform the different aspects of preparedness and preventive measures we need to put in place for the reopening of our NYC Headquarters. These guidelines were developed based on the Employee Wellness Survey responses, the COVID-19 Task Force and external survey through the Humentum network. CMMB is still working from home to protect the health of its employees. It is likely that all NYC volunteer placements will follow this format until the end of 2020. In the meantime, we are interviewing for remote service to support the COVID response with urgently needed skills.
