The health and safety of our families, volunteers, community, and employees are our highest priority. During this time, the Novi Youth Assistance office will be physically closed, and our community events will be suspended. However, our caseworker, Lisa Shields, is available remotely, and will continue to provide prevention resources and services. You’re welcome to contact her directly at 248-766-2103 or email.
The Oakland County Health Division (OCHD) has released various toolkits to help community sectors prepare for and prevent the spread of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) in our communities. Toolkits and prevention resources are available at www.oakgov.com/health for the public, healthcare providers, businesses, schools, childcare centers, faith-based organizations, senior centers, food service workers and first responders.
