HARC is committed to supporting the health, wellness, and quality of life for all. As such, we are abiding by Governor Newsom’s “stay-at-home” order in an effort to flatten the curve and slow the spread of COVID-19.

However, we are still here for you! All HARC staff members are working from home, so we anticipate no interruption to our services at this time. We will respond to emails and phone calls within one business day.

Our Data Release Event on March 31 will now be a webinar; we invite you to tune in at 8:30 am to join us: https://zoom.us/j/444770956

Our existing projects will go forward with some adaptations.

If you need support during these times collecting data, analyzing data, conducting evaluation or research, please reach out to us! There are many ways we can collect data while still maintaining social distancing, such as online surveys, virtual focus groups, and telephone interviews. These are challenging times, so if you need data to better serve your constituents, we are here to help. Just email staff@HARCdata.org to get started.

During this time of crisis, our funding is uncertain. Many of our regular donors are the very organizations that are hit the hardest by this pandemic—the healthcare organizations and providers. Many of our clients are postponing or cancelling projects, reducing our income. We are committed to cutting costs and exploring new ways to bring in revenue so that HARC will continue to exist for years to come. If you can contribute to this effort, we would deeply appreciate it: go to https://harcdata.org/donate/ or mail a check to HARC at 41550 Eclectic Street, Palm Desert, CA 92260.

If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to us. We’re all in this together!
