An important message from our Executive Director, Eric M. Chase, M.S. regarding the COVID-19 situation

in relation to the Children's Aid Society closing it's 3 centers.

"As a result of the statewide school closings and "Stay at Home Order" until June 8, 2020 as declared by Governor Wolfe, and in an effort to be part of the preventative, actions across our state, nation and world,

The Children’s Aid Society board of directors and leadership team has made the decision to close all three of our centers in support of this situation.

Our centers and crisis nursery remain closed until the Governor declares the yellow phase

for the counties we serve and where our centers are located.

The health and safety of our employees, the children, their families, and our communities that we serve is of the up-most importance.

If you are experiencing a medical emergency call 911, If you are having a mental health crisis call 1-800-273-8255.

Our 24/7 parent and caregiver hotline at 1-800-635-6619 will remain operational during this closure for emergency crisis.

Our leadership team will continue to monitor emails and periodically will be checking voicemails for routine non-emergency requests. We are now offering several of our services using telehealth, teleconference, and telephonic methods, please see our website for details. We will continue to monitor the situation and inform you of changes and decisions as they are being made via our website or our social media channels. 

Thank you for patience and understanding during these uncertain times and helping our team to ensure that all of our children are safe and feel loved.
