Coronavirus (COVID-19) Hub

Updated October 15, 2020
As we monitor information from health officials, we recognize that we all have a role in keeping our community safe and slow the spread of COVID-19 to help protect people at high risk for complications.  

  • TDN offices will be closed to the public for drop-in, face-to-face and group services and meetings
  • TDN staff members will continue to work remotely and provide services by phone, email & social media

Customers and community members needing assistance are encouraged to contact TDN by phone at 810-742-1800, email at tdn@disnetwork.org and through social media. 

We will continue to monitor guidance from health officials over the next few weeks and continue to send updates through media, social media and our mailing list.
