SAFEchild’s Response to the Coronavirus

SAFEchild will continue to serve the children and families of Wake County with modified programming and operations. Thank you for your continued support.

NOTE:  Our parent resource page offers  links to parenting and coping tips to help you  during this challenging time, as well as information about food assistance and other valuable community resources.

SAFEchild is aware of challenges posed by the rapid spread and rising number of confirmed cases of the coronavirus (COVID-19) in the United States and, in particular, Wake County. We are committed to accessing reliable and relevant information so we can take precautions and prepare, not panic.
First and foremost, we will follow guidance from the Centers for Disease Control as well as state and local public health officials – the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services and Wake County government.
In the interest of preventing further spread of the virus among our program participants, patients, staff, volunteers and those visiting the SAFEchild offices, we have modified our programming and operations.  Current protective measures until further notice include the following:
  • Suspending in-person group programs, home visits, and small and large on-site and community-based meetings.
  • Managing appointments at the SAFEchild Advocacy Center on a case-by-case basis. Call 919-231-5515 or email Monica Wilfong at mwilfong@safechildnc.org for more information.
  • SAFEchild program coordinators are contacting their volunteers and program participants directly with additional information.
  • Taking advantage of remote and telecommunication opportunities to remain engaged and connected to the community.
  • We are taking extra measures to ensure staff will be able to receive and respond to phone calls in a timely manner.
We are thankful for your continued support of SAFEchild and the children and families of Wake County during these uncertain times!
