ARVAC Temporary Closures

In alignment with the public schools, all ARVAC Head Start and Early Head Start Centers will be closed until April 17th.

Head Start Programs Operations

Family Advocates and COCs and CDELs will make regular contact with families. Family Services staff will be assessing families’ needs to ensure families have food, water, diapers, and supplies necessary during the closure. Please get with your Center Operations Coordinator if your family needs any of these items. 

Please see your Center Operations Coordinator for details on how to pick up food items during our closure.

Community Programs

Our Corporate Headquarters Office, Community Programs Complex, and County Outreach Offices will remain in operation but closed to the public. Program participants will need to complete applications and necessary paperwork by mail and/or email. Food distributions will continue as scheduled. Please contact your local ARVAC Outreach Office for a list of community resources and a distribution list.

For LiHEAP, all offices will take applications over the phone, fax, email or under the door. They will review each application, determine if additional information is needed, and then contact the applicant for verification and accuracy before pledging the service.

Corporate Headquarters Office

The Corporate Headquarters Office will remain in operation, but closed to the public.  Any future closures or facility shutdowns will be announced.
