TMI PROGRAM UPDATES

Toward Maximum Independence (TMI) has worked effectively and collaboratively during the pandemic. All of our programs are now open with precautions. Certain individuals based on Interdisciplinary Team meetings are attending day services. As we continue to conduct business, TMI believes a controlled and communicated protocol that considers the health and safety of employees is prudent.  

 

The details of the TMI Essential Business Protocol (EBP) are in accordance with state and local guidelines for a safe work environment. It should be noted that this document might not cover all circumstances that employees may encounter, and employees are encouraged to seek guidance from the Executive Director, Associate Executive Director, Program Directors, or the Human Resources Department, regarding questions or concerns as they arise.
