A Message from the Executive Director
Based on the list provided by the Provincial Government DCAFS is an essential service.
WE ARE STILL OPEN, in the modified way as outlined below.
Out of an abundance of concern for our community and our staff, DCAFS has implemented service delivery changes in order to be proactive and do our part to help address COVID-19. We know that times such as these can be anxiety provoking and can leave those most vulnerable feeling alone. We will continue to be here for you. In alignment with recommendations from public health authorities, we will abide by social distancing recommendations and provide most of our service by phone or through the internet. We are in the process of connecting with service recipients to plan together accordingly. At this time, we would ask that unscheduled visitors do not attend our office as we are limiting our in-person service delivery. Please feel very welcome to call us 519-941-1530 if you could benefit from support or if you have concerns for the well-being of a child/youth – we continue to care for and respond to our community. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding during this time of extraordinary measures
IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT DCAFS WALK-IN MENTAL HEALTH CLINIC
Out of concern for the health and safety of our community and staff, we have temporarily suspended our Wednesday walk-in clinic service, and are pleased to offer a phone counselling alternative. If you require the support of a clinician and had planned to attend our walk-in clinic on Wednesday, please instead call our office between 9-5 and we will connect you with a clinician. Our office number is 519-941-1530. Thank you for your patience and support as we all do our part to help flatten the curve of COVID-19.
