Staying Well and Staying Safe From COVID-19

Due to COVID-19 concerns in Shelby County, Friends For Life is taking the steps necessary to protect the good health and safety of our clients and staff, while still attending to the daily needs of those we serve. From March 16th-30th, we have put the following policies in place for our public facing facilities and services:
