Out of an abundance of caution and concern for the health of our families during the spreading pandemic, we have decided to close the Middletown and New Britain Family Wellness Center Programs for the foreseeable future.  Fortunately, the coronavirus seems to go easy on young people – but we hope you’ll agree it’s best to play it safe with our families.  We’d be devastated if anyone contracted the virus on our watch. We hope this won’t last too long — we’ll re-open when it seems right. 

We appreciate all of your understanding and hope you and your family stay safe and playful till we’re back together again!

Thank You,

Nat Holmes, Program Manager
