Maternal, Child, and Adolescent Health

During these uncertain times, we hope that you and your family are safe and healthy. Temporarily, our Community Health Nursing home visitation programs and Maternal Child Adolescent Health services are limited due to the deployment of public/community health nurses to COVID-19 immunizations. We are triaging referrals and sending letters with resources to the people that we are unable to reach or provide services. Thank you for your understanding. Call if you have any questions or need clarification at 805-981-5115.
