UPDATE ON SERVICES DURING COVID-19
With Coos County being approved for Phase 2 Reopening we wanted to update this post to let our community know that our office hours and in-person services (non-emergent) will remain reduced, as described below this update. Our agency is constantly monitoring the ever-changing situation and guidance regarding COVID-19 and we are committed to remaining focused on our primary objective of maintaining the overall health and safety of our employees and the survivors that we serve. At this time we are researching and planning for the implementation of best practice techniques to increase services as well as expand office hours while maintaining social distancing guidelines and other needed safety precautions.
Please continue reading the post below for the most up-to-date information on available services for survivors in Coos County. Stay safe!
Please read and share these updates regarding current direct services available to domestic violence and/or sexual assault survivors in Coos County.
Effectice immediately The SAFE Project will be reducing our Outreach Office hours to 9am – 1pm, Monday through Friday and all in-person services will be by appointment only.
