Due to the increasing concern regarding the COVID-19 virus, Ouachita Children, Youth, and Family Services is ceasing all volunteer activities and tangible good donations, as well as limiting family visitation for all of our programs; Ouachita Children’s Center, Ouachita Youth Center, and Ouachita Family Center. These changes will be effective immediately, until further notice.
All visitors to Ouachita Children’s Center at 339 Charteroak in Hot Springs will be screened before they will be allowed to enter the facility. The priority of Ouachita Children, Youth, and Family Services continues to be the health and safety of our shelter residents and those we serve. We are closely following guidelines of the Centers for Disease and Prevention (CDC) and the Arkansas Department of Health regarding sanitation and personal hygiene for everyone in our programs, including staff.
