As the situation with the coronavirus evolves, like you, Options for Women is facing a great many unknowns. We want our supporters to know that for now, Options is committed to staying open for pregnant women who need our services while following state and CDC guidelines. These guidelines have prompted us to make some necessary policy adjustments to help lessen the risks of infection.
All appointments are now being made over the phone in order to screen potential clients before they come to our center. Phone scheduling allows us to space appointments so that our waiting area is never overcrowded, reducing the risk of exposure. We are supplied with masks and can utilize larger spaces in our center where we can meet individually with our clients.
Our staff is taking sanitary precautions to follow all regulations issued by the CDC
What does this mean for our donors, visitors and volunteers?
In an effort to minimize health risks, Options is limiting access to our center, including our new administrative offices, to everyone other than potential clients. At this time, though we don’t know how long it will be, we are asking volunteers, visitors, and folks who usually donate baby goods, maternity clothes, etc, to avoid coming to Options until further notice.
We believe these measures are necessary in order to safeguard the health of our clients, our staff and all of you.
We will continue to operate until shelter in place laws affect our policy if it should come to that.
We know these are troubling times for our world.
But take courage; for [He} has overcome the world.
Thanks for your love, support, and prayers!
We will get through this.
