We make good kids better.

St. Vincent Family Center’s Response to COVID-19

Uncertain times can leave us feeling unsure of how to best support our families. And now more than ever, our children need us – to create a sense of safety and stability they can rely on.

St. Vincent Family Center remains OPEN and ready to meet your family’s behavioral health needs. We’ve adapted our programs to prioritize the health and safety of our community, now offering convenient Telehealth counseling and intervention by video and telephone. We’ve also expanded our counseling and psychiatry programs to now serve adults ages 19-62.

If you or you family are looking for behavioral health support, St. Vincent Family Center is here for you. Give us a call at (614) 824-KIDS (5437) or complete an online request for support here.

Commitment to Health and Safety

St. Vincent Family Center is taking every precaution to ensure the safety of our children, our families and our care team. In accordance with the requirements set forth by the state of Ohio, and with special consideration to our St. Vincent Family, here’s what we’re doing to keep SVFC Safe and Healthy:

 

Every SVFC employee is wearing appropriate face coverings while working onsite as a method of protection to limit the potential spread of COVID-19. We request that all children attending programming at SVFC wear appropriate face coverings – we keep clean child masks available for daily wear.

We’ve implemented safe social distancing practices throughout our facility. We are limiting total enrollment in our on-site Day Treatment Program and the number of children assigned to each group to comply with distancing protocols.

We have increased agency-wide cleaning and sanitation measures to maintain a healthy environment at SVFC. We are complying with all cleaning requirements enforced by the Ohio Department of Health and are frequently and thoroughly disinfecting high-contact items and areas.

In addition to taking the temperatures of all employees daily, we are taking the temperature of each child upon arrival to SVFC each day. Children with a temperature of 100.4F (38C) or higher are asked to leave and return when fever and symptom free for 72 hours per CDC guidelines. Children and SVFC employees who are ill or displaying symptoms consistent with COVID-19 are asked to stay home.

Frequent and appropriate handwashing is encouraged across our facility. Children are required to wash their hands upon arriving and leaving SVFC, closely monitored by our care team. Handwashing areas and appropriate soap and sanitation are stationed throughout the building, and reminders are provided to all SVFC employees daily.
