Updates on COVID-19, March 30th, 2020

Desert View Family Counseling is actively monitoring the evolving COVID-19 situation and diligently following guidelines provided by the Center for Disease Control, New Mexico Department of Health, and the Children, Youth and Families Department.

We are prioritizing the safety of clients, staff, and community members, in order to support the best public health outcomes.

As of Monday March 23rd, our facilities ( in Farmington and Gallup) will no longer be open to the public. Therapy Services will continue to offered by phone, by ZOOM (which is a free app. for any kind of phone or laptop).

All in home programs, to include Family Support Services Workers, Supervised Visitation & Exchange Monitors, Truancy Court Officers and Wraparound Facilitators will also be limited to phone visits or ZOOM applications as well.

The following precautions are in place at Desert View Family Counseling:

Access to Desert View facilities, (the main clinic on East Main), Family Support Services (on N. Butler), Families First (on Behrend Dr) and our Gallup Family Support Services office, will not be open to the public. Nor will we be providing in-home visits, supervised visits or transportation for any of our field programs.

The acceptance of In-Kind donations is temporarily suspended aside from sealed packages of wipes and diapers (which our need for is critical).

All Staff will assist and support families in addressing the mitigation strategies identified by the CYFD, NM DOH, and the CDC.

These precautions will continually be assessed and adjusted as the situation continues to evolve. We will continue to make changes to programming and provide updates to our community as quickly as possible.
