We will follow the directions and recommendations from the State and Federal CDC health agencies, and do all that we can to reduce the spread of the Coronavirus in our community. Our offices and centers are closed until further notice, however you can still call the main number, 252-492-0161, and someone will be able to help. The team at FVWOPP continues to work to provide services to our clients while we work remotely from our homes.
We are working on developing some new resources for our clients, and in the next couple of weeks, we will begin food distributions to our client families in each county where we provide services. Soon, our new virtual classroom filled with educational activities for our Head Start early learners will be launched. As details are finalized we will announce locations and times for all of our new resources and services.
We are all being impacted by the pandemic, and our experience has taught us that if we pull together, we can get through the tough times.
Please be safe. Follow the recommended safety guidelines.
Together with you,
