COVID-19 Response

As the number of reported coronavirus (COVID-19) cases in NYC and NYS increases, we care to keep the GFP community safe and protected, as well as help mitigate the pandemic in the United States. Please note that The Ackerman Institute for the Family's physical offices are closed at this time until further notice.

Regarding our services and programs, please note the following:

- GFP is currently accepting new clients. You can inquire about services by scheduling a brief screening call with GFP Program Assistant, Marcelo Dedini at MDedini@ackerman.org

- As we care to continue supporting our existing clients, please note that GFP Family Therapy services are still operating through phone and zoom Tele-Health sessions. If you are an existing client, please get in touch with your clinician to confirm schedule and availability.

- GFP in-house trainings are canceled until further notice. Community trainings can be provided remotely through webinars and video platforms. To inquire or for an already planned training, please get in touch with Alexis Diaz at Adiaz@ackerman.org
