Children's Aid Society and the COVID-19 Response Update

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

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

Following Governor Wolf’s and Dr. Levine’s COVID19-Related health and safety guidelines, On Monday, June 1st, 2020, Children’s Aid Society began seeing clients at all three of our facilities (The Lehman Center & The Crisis Nursery) and at our Adams County facility (The Nicarry Center) and our Franklin County facility (The Frances Leiter Center).
During this time, telehealth and remote work will continue, however there will be an option for in-person counseling and Crisis Nursery services as requested and needed. Please note that our team at the Children’s Aid Society will be following appropriate CDC recommended guidelines and may ask our guests to also follow those guidelines as you enter and interact with our team.
Safety for our guests and team is our primary concern. Thank you in advance for your understanding and for helping to keep our children and families safe during these difficult times.
