With the growing concerns and precautions taking place around COVID-19, Hull Services remains committed to supporting the mental health and well-being of the young people and families we serve. During this time, one of our top priorities is to provide a safe and healthy environment for everyone at the Agency.

To support the importance of social distancing, we have cancelled all non-essential group meetings, training, events and tours. Where possible, we are using remote technologies to replace regular face-to-face contact and staff who are able to perform their duties remotely are working from home. Additionally, we are taking the necessary steps to implement extra sanitation processes to ensure our environments are clean and safe.
AHS has implemented protocols and measures for congregate care facilities and Hull Services is taking all the necessary steps to meet the requirements issued by the government.
To continue to maintain a healthy and safe environment at Hull, we are restricting visitations both in programs and with youth leaving programs.
