Steps to Prevent Illness with COVID-19 Per the CDC
The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus.
The virus is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person.
- Between people who are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet).
- Through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes.
These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs.
Take steps to protect yourself
Clean your hands often
- Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds especially after you have been in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
- If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Cover all surfaces of your hands and rub them together until they feel dry.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
Avoid close contact

Clean and disinfect

Child and Family Focus Inc. is a not-for-profit, faith based agency serving children and youth in Montgomery, Chester, Bucks and Delaware counties. It is our mission to enhance the quality of life for youth and their families. We provide and advocate for the least restrictive, family and community based settings for children’s optimum growth and positive change.
CFF aspires to become a leader in providing innovative services to families and children who have emotional and behavioral challenges. We are dedicated to meeting their needs through a strong commitment to the CASSP principles, best practices, and continuum of care. We look to reduce how long children / youth live in Residential Treatment Facilities and help families achieve successful relationships and meaningful lives.
It is the goal of CFF to offer Family-Based Services, Respite Care, Therapeutic Foster Care Services and Community Based Mental Health Support Services to children and youth with mental and behavioral challenges. These programs will provide child-centered, family-focused, community-based services with a multidisciplinary team approach. Our goal is for the child to successfully remain in his / her or return home from Therapeutic Foster Care rather than be placed in a residential or psychiatric facility. We aspire to:
- Reduce the number of children served out-of-home
- Decrease length and stay in out-of-home placements
- Provide permanency and reunification with family
- Lessen unplanned re-entries into out-of-home placements
CFF follows a new and effective method of care by offering Family-Based, Therapeutic Foster Care and Respite Services to provide significant continuity of care. With our model, children are followed by the same team, preserving the established relationship with the child and family throughout treatment, be it in-home, Therapeutic Foster Care, Respite Care, or short term hospital stay. In so doing, we prevent the common disruptive, ineffectual, costly cycle of multi-agency / multi-system care management.
