SHIP makes service adjustments to protect public health and safety to flatten the curve of the COVID-19 Pandemic

The well-being of our communities, clients, families and staff are our priority during this uncertain time. While we continue to monitor the situation to make sure we can deliver the best services possible to clients in need, we are currently restricting access to our main office by appointment only.

Please see below for more useful information and resources.

Remember, we are all in this together!
