Message Concerning the Coronavirus

Dear Friends,

As we posted in mid-March, while Children’s Futures is carefully watching the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) situation, we are actively taking steps to ensure the safety of our team and the continuity of our operations. We’ve had disaster preparedness and business continuity plans in place for events such as natural disasters and pandemics for some time, and we are prepared to withstand these occurrences with minimal impact to you.

Due to the recent increase in coronavirus cases in New Jersey along with State and Local mandates, we have decided to make adjustments to our regularly normal work schedule. Please know that every effort is being made to assist those we serve as well as ensure the safety of our team. Therefore, effective Tuesday, March 17, 2020 at 5 pm, Children’s Futures offices will be closed except for Thursdays in which we will be available for one-on-one counseling, diapers and pregnancy testing. Our team of Home Visiting Nurses, Doulas and Case Manager will work via Telehealth and one on one (as needed) while the rest of our CF team will work remotely from home to adhere to Federal, State, County and City guidelines. Unfortunately, until some of the state and local policies are relaxed, all of our outreach events and activities are cancelled at this time.

At this time, it is our plan to re-open on Tuesday, June 2, 2020. We are encouraging all of our clients, employees and community to put their health in the forefront; however, we understand the rapidly evolving situation is causing uncertainty. Since well-being is first, and so we can continue to operate effectively do our part to prevent the spread of disease, we will continue to assess the situation and keep you all posted if anything changes.

As your community partner striving to strengthen children and families of Trenton and the surrounding areas, please continue to stay informed, healthy and safe.

Peace and Blessings,

Spencer Lester, CEO/CFO/Project Manager
