The Family Place is moving forward with a slow and careful re-opening plan. We want to keep everyone as safe as possible, but understand that in person meetings are important for everyone’s mental well being. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we implement a few new procedures. These may change as we continue to get new information from the Transylvania County Health Department and the Center for Disease Control. To request a copy of our full reopening plan, please email
