Visiting our Offices

Our offices are now able to accommodate full capacity, per our state’s guidelines. Our staff members who are vaccinated are not required to wear masks; our staff members who are not vaccinated are required to wear a mask.

When you visit our offices, we ask that everyone please wear a mask while walking through the common areas. We can provide you with a mask if you need one. Once you are in an office with one of our staff members, you may remove your mask if you have been vaccinated.

If you have a child with you who has not been vaccinated, we will happily wear a mask when meeting with them.

At each of our offices, we are continuing to follow CDC protocols and guidance for disinfecting and cleaning on a regular basis.

How to Reach Us:

Phone: (978) 834-9710 (Amesbury office) or (978) 989-9361 (Children’s Safety Program in Lawrence). You will be directed by an automatic greeting to leave a voicemail for the person you are trying to reach and staff will return your call.
