By providing support for youth, families, parents and adults in Yorkton and east-central Saskatchewan
SIGN staff is working from home as of Tuesday, March 24, in order to ensure the safety and health of clients and staff during the Covid-19 pandemic. At this time there is no set schedule for how long the new way of providing services will have to be in place.
Some programs are excluded from the work-from-home process because the services cannot be provided that way. The excluded programs include the SIGN Early Learning Centre, the Adolescent Group Home, Trustee Program and front desk/dispatch services.
Doors for both the Elton Davidge Building on North Street and SIGN on Broadway are locked. This will provide the opportunity to do an even more thorough job of sanitizing in preparation for the buildings reopening in the future, and for the safety of those who must continue to use the buildings.
There is a directory on all main lobby doors at SIGN on Broadway with phone numbers of all program managers so clients can contact them by phone. Signs also advise clients of Turning Point to use a door on the west side of the building, and a doorbell has been installed for them to use.
Following is detailed information about each of the SIGN programs, and how they are being conducted at this time. This information will be updated here and on our Facebook page (www.facebook.com/signyorkton) if and when changes occur.
We continue to look for innovative ways to implement programs and services while adhering to safety protocols and standards. We thank you for your patience and understanding during this challenging time.
Please note that any information stated here may change at any time, based on the ongoing advice and guidance from Saskatchewan government ministries and provincial and local health authorities.

SIGN for the Times is a new feature where people who have used SIGN's services talk about their experience, and how the services and help they received have impacted their lives.
