A message from our Founder, Mr. Dan Heit, in response to the Coronavirus pandemic:
I know you are concerned to outright terrified. Whatever your feeling tone, it is justified. I’ve been saying it’s like we woke up a week ago in a science fiction horror movie.
Understandably, many of you have expressed concern about JusticeWorks’ ability to weather the pressures on our business.
I only have one goal at the moment: to realize our motto to ‘build better futures’. That means JusticeWorks will survive and we will maintain as much employment as possible. We all know that when we get back to anything resembling ‘normal’, our effective services will be needed more than ever, serving more people than ever, and with more staff than ever.
We’ve made some difficult decisions in the past week, and there may well be more ahead. While I deeply regret the pain these changes cause, they are all done to give the organization a fighting chance. I have gotten so many gracious understanding notes which lift my spirits and make me redouble my efforts to one day soon make up for the suffering you’ve gone through.
I’ve long said that if I have one skill, it’s stubbornness. It is not in my nature to give up and failure is not an option.
With your continued understanding and support, our amazing team will continue to prevail and continue to make the world a better place—one child and one family at a time.
God bless and be safe.
Responses from staff:
“Thank you Dan. JusticeWorks is the best agency I’ve ever been a part of and I know we will all get through this. Stay safe!”
“Thank you for your constant updates, emails, and general concern for all of your employees! “Whatever it takes,” has been my favorite motto and even in times of darkness for us, families, and everyone else in this world, JusticeWorks continues to provide myself personally light at the end of this “tunnel.” I’m sure JusticeWorks will soon enough provide “light at the end of the tunnel” for our families, as well, especially when they are faced to deal with this aftermath. I look forward to the days where we can provide help and support to our families! Thank you for everything you have done, are doing, and continue to do.”
