Compass of Carolina will reopen offices Thursday, March 4 for in-person services after all programs went virtual 12 months ago due to Coronavirus pandemic.
“The decision to reopen was not a straightforward one” states Kimberly Martinez-Ward, Compass Executive Director. “We realized we could not have a one-size-fits-all approach to reopening our workspace. “Over the past few months, we considered what services would look like if we reopened, what protocols and procedures needed to be implemented, and what was necessary for our workspaces to meet social distancing policies”.
To meet the needs of our clients and community-at-large, Compass of Carolina is reopening for in-person services in three phases. Beginning tomorrow (March 4), Compass will reopen for in-person counseling clients only. All other programs and services will continue to serve the community virtually or by teleconferencing.
“During this past year, we saw an increase in families needing counseling due to high levels of stress, anxiety and depression. And our clients continued to ask when they could come back for in-person services,” stated Ward.
Social-distancing polices and procedures will be in effect during each counseling session, including the wearing of masks and disinfecting of all facilities. All clients are to call to schedule an appointment. No walk-ins are allowed. For more information on call 864-467-3434 or our website: www.compassofcarolina.org.
