Dear Friends,
We know that this is a difficult time. Things are changing each moment and it can be confusing and scary. We want you to know that through all of this, Family will be here for you every step of the way. While we must limit face-to-face contacts, we are committed to keeping all of our essential services operating, including our shelters (Family House Teen Shelter, Family Inn Shelter, Family of Woodstock’s Darmstadt Shelter, and Family Domestic Violence Services & The Washbourne House Shelter), transitional living program sites (MidWay- Transitional Living Program), and walk-in centers at Family of Woodstock Hotline & Textline, Family of New Paltz, and Family of Ellenville. Evolve groups are being postponed until April 6th. The walk-in centers will have very limited walk-in services, but food bags will be provided through our pantries, please call ahead of time so we can have your food ready for pick up.

Our 24-hour hotline will remain operating at all times, as it has for the past 50 years. If you are experiencing difficulty and need someone to talk to, contact us. We will get through this together.
