CALL TO ACTION
During these troubled times when businesses are having to shut down because of the coronavirus, it is important that YOU know that SPS cannot and will not shut it’s doors; however, we, too, need money to pay our staff and our phone bills, light bills, etc.
SPS offices are fully staffed as I write this. We are not seeing clients face to face but we are doing phone sessions and consults. Yesterday, a distraught young woman called from Mercy Hospital. She’d been inpatient and needed to set an appointment with a therapist or she wouldn’t be released. One of our therapists took the call and assured her that while we weren’t seeing clients face to face at this time, we ARE continuing to do phone therapy and consults. If we have to shut our building down, all therapists have laptops and cell phones so we’ll continue to serve our clients and the community.
