Nexus Youth & Family Services has spent the past several days consulting with County departments, community partners, and others to develop a response plan to the COVID-19 pandemic. Our priority is to continue to provide services safely for our clients, staff and community. In order to limit in-person contact, until further notice the Nexus main offices in Jackson as well as the Upcountry Community Center, Camanche Lake Community Center, and Ione Family Resource Center facilities will be closed to the public however staff will continue to provide essential programs and services for the community. 

Food distributions will continue to be provided at the Upcountry Community Center, the Camanche Lake Community Center, and in River Pines. These will be drive-through distribution events. Playgroup and Kindergarten Readiness activities will be distributed at the Upcountry Community Center and Camanche Lake Community Center using the drive-through system as well. Other essential family, youth and therapeutic services will also continue to be provided by agency staff utilizing phone, video conferencing, and telemedicine software.
