Update May 15, 2020
Thank you for continuing to choose and trust Lead Foundation. The safety of our children, families and programs always comes first. We continue to guide our health and safety protocols with Alberta Health Services recommendations.
During these evolving times, programs for our children have been modified from the traditional methods to minimize risk. At this time, we are proud to continue to offer our families services through a variety of options including virtual sessions, phone meetings, e-mail correspondence and the opportunity for families to attend virtual group sessions. We will continue to work with the Alberta government and other service providers to ensure all staff and families are safe and follow all health protocols recommended, as this is a shared responsibility.
Your safety is important to us. We have updated our internal policies and procedures to keep our staff safe, increased our cleaning frequency in high-touch point areas using best practices and products identified by health organizations and installed signage around our offices to encourage physical distancing. Hand sanitizer is also available for all of our staff members and visitors. Our office is open to answer any questions you may have. Simply give us a call at 403-270-7912 or e-mail us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will continue to update our staff and families as new relaunch information into our local communities becomes available.
