Better Family Life Youth is here to help through the uncertainty and times ahead. With programs and services across Missouri and Illinois, we are on the front lines to determine where resources are most needed. Our management team is closely monitoring the developments of COVID-19 in our region and across the nation to ensure the safety of our staff, volunteers and people we serve.

We encourage you to review these recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control for reducing the risk of COVID-19 infection for ourselves and others.
Over the past few weeks, Better Family Life Youth has been tracking developments regarding the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). Because the health and safety of our community is our highest priority, we have been following the recommendations of all health authorities, and we have been in almost daily consultation with experts to understand how our organization can help slow the spread of the virus.
We have now made the difficult decision to modify programming at BFL Youth for the next two weeks in an effort to protect the safety of our families, our staff and our community. We are postponing all public and sporting events for March, and we will continue to evaluate the situation as it evolves. Our primary responsibility is to serve our families, keeping them safe and helping them thrive. This is our primary consideration in making this decision, as it is for all decisions at Better Family Life.
