Storm doesn’t stop human service workers
Winter storm Juno dropped more than 30 inches of snow in central Massachusetts and almost 25 inches in Boston throughout the night of Monday, January 26 and into the morning of Tuesday, January 27. Many schools and offices closed early Monday night and remained closed all day Tuesday in response to the storm. Governor Charlie Baker issued a travel ban throughout the Commonwealth and the MBTA closed down as well.
Thought it seemed as if the state was shutting down, one in ten Massachusetts' residents still needed to be cared for by human service workers. These dedicated workers, as well as other essential personnel, were exempt from the travel ban in order to serve their clients and help those in need.
The Providers' Council thanks all of the human service workers -- our other first responders -- who continued their work in treacherous conditions in order to care for the Commonwealth's most vulnerable residents.
