Family Service Updates Related to COVID-19

Family Service’s Management is actively monitoring the outbreak of COVID-19. This situation continues to evolve on a daily basis.

Family Service provides essential services for vulnerable populations and will continue to serve our clients at several locations as well as through telehealth platforms.  All these services will be provided while taking an abundance of caution to prevent the spread of COVID-19 among staff, our clients and visitors.  We are following the guidance issued by the CDC and World Health Organization (WHO) as well as our Federal, State and County Health Departments.

Some temporary changes to our services, processes and agency hours are necessary to adhere to government guidelines and safe practices. As new information becomes available, we will continue to assess and adapt programs and services to best meet the needs of our staff and vulnerable clients and will continue to provide updates as appropriate.
