Many of our participants, their families and caretakers often have had the same questions for SOAR!. Please view the questions and answers below to see if we could answer any of them, or feel free to contact us directly.
Is SOAR open during COVID-19?
No, all SOAR! activities and events are cancelled and we have closed our operations, effective July 31, 2020.
Will SOAR! reopen in the future after COVID-19?
No, as of July 31, 2020, we have made the decision to close our operations.
There had been significant operational and funding changes at the Cuyahoga County Board of Developmental Disabilities that impact how organizations like SOAR! provide services. The business model we had used since 2005 is simply no longer a viable way to deliver recreational activities and events.
These changes, coupled with the major impact of COVID-19 have added to the vulnerability of SOAR! ... our participants, caregivers, families, staff and hundreds of friends! Simply stated, it is just not possible to continue providing recreational services in a way that keeps everyone safe. And, that has always been our number one priority!
Thank you for allowing us to be a part of your lives for the past 15-1/2 years! It has been our pleasure.
