ALMA SITES ARE CLOSED TO THE PUBLIC AT THIS TIME

During these challenging times Alma Family Services has closely monitored Coronavirus (COVID-19) developments. Our Leadership team has been in direct communication with systems of care and elected officials, taking steps to safeguard the health and wellbeing of staff and clients. As you might know on 3/19/2020 the City and County of Los Angeles issued the “Safer At Home'' order, calling on people to remain at home as much as possible in response to the coronavirus. This order begins at 11:59pm on March 19 and will continue through May 15, 2020.

In order to further reduce the chance of communal exposure during this evolving crisis, our offices will be closed to the public and most of Alma staff will work remotely effective 3/20/2020 until further notice. We know that this pandemic has caused significant anxiety and stress. Our staff is committed to serving our community, promoting health, resilience and hope, especially during these uncertain times. Alma will utilize telephone and video platforms (when approved by the respective City/County department) to offer a range of supportive services to its clients and community at large including mental health services, case management, parenting support and youth development programming.

We will stay in touch and provide periodic updates through Facebook and our Website, providing updates and ways in which you may access these services.
