Have you made any changes during the pandemic that you’ll carry forward? For us, providing care over the phone to clients like Antonio Barnes has been a major breakthrough.

It’s early in the morning and Kim Hawkins sits out on her balcony. A rustling bush across the street in Leakin Park catches her attention. Out pops a fawn, then another, then another. Six in total.

“They’re out there playing just like kids!” she says. “It’s so peaceful here. I love it.”
