We strive to stay ahead of public health efforts to flatten the curve of transmission of COVID-19. Closing our facilities lowers the risk of exposure for our staff, clients and the broader community.
We take the risk to the health and safety of our clients, colleagues, family and friends seriously. Still, we remain committed to the children, youth and families in our care.
Service and operational modifications include:
- Client and family visits and other direct care will be conducted virtually
- Family services meetings (including Foster and Kinship Navigation) will be conducted virtually
- Foster parent information sessions will be done over video conferencing — call 855.GROW.HOPE or email GrowHope@SaintA.org to inquire about becoming a foster parent
- Mental health services are now available via tele-medicine: visit The Clinic at SaintA or our School Based Mental Health providers
- Youth Transitioning to Adulthood staff is available for video chats; contact 414.465.5134 or YTA@SaintA.org to reach a peer mentor
- Media inquires can be made at News@SaintA.org
The Compassion CurveDuring this unusual time, it is not lost on our leaders or staff that our organization began 170 years ago in response to an epidemic. Back then, it was cholera and we are proud to have played a crucial role in the lives of children and families throughout our rich history.
As you practice your own protective measures, we offer you this insight from our President and CEO Ann Leinfelder Grove, “As we flatten the curve, let us also increase the compassion curve – for others, as well as ourselves.”
