The SACE winter office closure starts Friday, December 22, 2023, to Friday, January 5, 2024. The office will re-open on Monday, January 8, 2024. This means we will not be responding to voicemails, emails, or social media messages during this time.

If you are in crisis or need someone to talk to, please know you are not alone. We have listed some support options for you to consider over the holidays.
