Safety and security of the community drives the decision to close offices and Wells Center to the general public; slowing the spread of the coronavirus paramount to decision.

In light of the current CDC and Texas public health recommendations surrounding COVID-19, the Area Foundation has asked its employees to conduct day-to-day work activities from home. However, staff remain accessible to needs, and are available to meet virtually with technology tools, host conference calls, and respond to email. General requests may be submitted to, and a full staff listing is available with phone numbers online.

We are assessing daily the best way to achieve our mission without compromising the health of our employees and external stakeholders. 

We send our thoughts and well wishes to our entire community, as we each work through unprecedented changes and emerging needs.

The public can stay informed about the Area Foundation’s plans through our website,, or social media channels.
