During this challenging and uncertain time, we are committed to doing all that we can to care for those facing a pregnancy decision while also doing our part to guard the health of our community. In an effort to meet these needs, we will be implementing digital services for the remainder of the year.
While our office will reopen when deemed safe by New York State and our onsite services will again become available, we recognize that public travel and in-person contact may remain a barrier to receiving services for those in our county representing vulnerable populations. Our digital services will mitigate these barriers, as well as the added risks of exposure by allowing women and men facing a pregnancy decision to receive care via phone or computer.
