Additional Note

Holly Ridge Center Community: Here is an update to our programs and how we are providing services to our community. Stay safe, stay healthy, and stay tuned.

Infant Toddler Program:

Holly Ridge Center’s highest priority is to keep families and staff safe.  Kitsap County is currently in Phase -2 Safe Start.  Based on Early Support for Infant and Toddlers (ESIT) and the Department of Child Youth and Family Services guidelines, Holly Ridge Center is in Early Support for Infant and Toddlers Stage 1 – limited in person services for children with very specific needs that cannot be accommodated through virtual services such as zoom, this is about 2-4% of all the children we provide services for. Early Support for Infant and Toddlers highly recommends the use of virtual services to protect children, families, and staff.  Holly Ridge Center is currently working on a plan for expanded in-person services, however these visits are not permitted until the county is in Phase 3 as determined by Governor Inslee.  Read more information here.

Adult Employment Services: Adult Employment Services program is supporting their individuals based on their current employment status, goals and service needs.  For those needing support as they perform their essential personnel functions in public, we are practicing social distancing & stay healthy guidelines and for those self-isolating we are reaching out in various virtual forms.
