FCA has served Long Islanders since 1884 through some difficult and challenging times and we continue to do so today in ways that limit health risks to clients, staff, volunteers and vendors. We recognize that in times of crisis, community needs increase and we are called to do even more. That's why all of our programs remain open and our staff are working hard to support kids, families and seniors through these unprecedented times. We are monitoring the COVID-19 situation closely and will continue to fine tune our response in the days and weeks to come. We are receiving daily bulletins from the state and county health departments, from NYS OFA, OMH, OASAS, OCFS and CDC. Based on what we have heard from them, we have listed below the current modifications to our normal programs. Also, the full FCA COVID-19 Statement is available on our homepage or in the Press Release section of our site.
