Dear Fellow Staff:

On July 1, 2020 I announced that as of July 6, 2020 we would be awarding a $1.25 per hour stipend for all hours worked in a residential home or job coaches working on a business services contract through August 2, 2020. At that time I stated we would evaluate this on a monthly basis, to see if it was financially feasible to continue.

I am pleased to announce that through prudent fiscal planning we will be able to continue that stipend for all hours worked by our residential counselors and job coaches assigned to a contract until further notice. We will continue to monitor our fiscal health, but as of now we plan on leaving those stipends in place.

I am in awe of the incredible job of our employees working around the clock to fulfill NCIA’s mission — to care for those most in need, especially during these challenging times. Please know that all of the NCIA family appreciate your efforts.

Stay safe, and make sure you wear your masks and gloves and other protective equipment!

With continuing gratitude,

Herbert J. Hoelter

Chief Executive Officer
