Out of caution for the health and safety of our community, our offices will remain closed until further notice. Our staff is working remotely to continue providing essential services, while limiting the risk of exposure and transmission of COVID-19. While it was our original intention to reopen on April 7th, we are following the CDC and governor’s guidelines to limit gatherings of 10 or more people and will reopen when we have been granted permission.​ All 24 hour facilities remain open.

We will continue to provide our services via phone and email. If you already have a direct contact at SMOC, please keep in touch with that SMOC staff member with any questions during this time.

Follow our Facebook account for up-to-date information about SMOC and to reach us directly. A dedicated staff is always ready to answer your questions through Facebook messaging.
