About The Guild for Human Services: The Guild's mission is to educate, encourage, and empower individuals with intellectual disabilities so they may achieve their full potential to lead high quality lives and participate meaningfully in society. The Guild operates a licensed special-education school that serves 85 students ages 6-22, nine group homes for 65 youth and 12 residential homes for 55 adults, including one in Sudbury.
About the film:
The onset of the COVID-19 pandemic brought life as we knew it at The Guild to a standstill. Almost overnight, school and residential staff pivoted to move classrooms to students' residences, create supplemental day programming for adults, and live with those they served during quarantine. Residents were separated from their loved ones for months on end, all the while navigating the ever-changing state mandates and policies. Through it all, The Guild's community adapted and grew stronger. This short film features interviews with Guild staff, students, residents, parents, and community partners and provides a first-hand look at how the pandemic curtailed the community life of individuals with intellectual disabilities.
