This is why we're here.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, the need for the Damien Center’s services has increased and will continue to do so afterward. Our clients and patients are among the most likely people in our community to experience negative fallout. Many have medical risk factors, and many—often at the same time—face economic insecurity. An increasing number, through no fault of their own, will find themselves without the ability to pay for rent or food or medicine.

Our team will continue to assess and review the situation each week. Restrictions may be added or loosened depending on the current situation.

Reduced Hours

Due to increasing COVID-19 cases, the Damien Center will be operating with reduced hours starting November 30, 2020.

Mon 9a - 4p
Tues 9a - 4p

Client Holiday Party

Due to the rise in COVID-19 cases, Damien Center will be canceling the annual client holiday party. In lieu of the holiday party, Damien Center will have a limited amount of client holiday gifts. Gifts will be first come, first served. Please see your case manager to be signed up by December 11, 2020.

Restrictions

We will be limiting the number of individuals allowed inside all common areas, including the Main Lobby, Clinic Lobby, and Testing Lobby. If you have questions or are unsure about what to do, please reach out directly to your Care Coordinator or give us a call at 317 632 0123.

Clients may only be in the building 15 minutes before appointments and are asked to depart at the conclusion of the appointment. No client phone services will be available at this time. We ask that only clients enter the building, although children are permitted.

Volunteers will be limited and volunteers must be under 65 and have no high-risk health issues to be in the building. Please contact Tessa Barnard with any additional questions.

Testing

Please note: We do not test for COVID-19! If you have symptoms of COVID-19, have had close contact with someone confirmed to have COVID-19, or have been asked by your healthcare provider to get tested, please do not come into the building and instead consult your healthcare provider.

Due to increasing cases of COVID-19, the Damien Center Testing Center will be testing on an appointment only basis. To schedule your appointment, please click here.
