Girl Scouts

Hope House
Providing services by phone or appointment

Kelly B Todd Cerebral Palsy and Neuromuscular Center
We are keeping our doors open to our clients that want to continue to come.  They have all been contacted regarding our new procedures and discourage families to come if ANYONE in the family is ill.  We have families use hand-sanitizer when they walk in the door and all exposed surfaces and equipment used are thoroughly cleaned multiple times per day. So, for the time being, we will continue therapy services with our kiddos.

Kids' Space
We are open for services, but we are triaging things that can wait in an effort to restrict the number of people in the building at one time.  I have attached our protocol, which of course is fluid as we continue to follow updates from public health officials.  We are not open for walk-ins, clients dropping by, or donations.  We are seeing appointments only.  We have signs on our door regarding our current level of service and have posted this to our Facebook as well.

Legal Aid - Muskogee

Legal Aid - Tahlequah
Our Tahlequah Legal Aid office is staffed, but the doors are locked. We can be reached by phone for any legal needs. This is certainly a time when additional civil legal needs will arise. If at some point, we start to work remotely, we will still be accessible through the office numbers. They will ring directly to our cell phones. As always, if you need me, email, and I will get back with you. 

MCCOYS

VOA/RSVP Retired Senior Volunteer Program
As for right now, we are open for services, by appointment only. We are trying to limit the number of people in the office.

WISH - Women in Safe Home
At this time we are business as usual.  We are completely full at the shelter and will continue to provide services to victims. At some point in time, the shelter could become quarantined and that will definitely change how we do things, but we can’t shut down.  We are not allowing non-clients into the shelter, we are following major cleaning and hygiene regulations and restricting where we go.  But, victims first.
