Future Directions COS is a peer run organization that offers multiple paths of recovery including peer facilitated support groups, an arts and crafts program, and a drop-in center.  Here, our members can talk about issues that are important to them, like social, work, or coping skills.  We also have recreation areas like our fitness room, television lounge, and table games space with air hockey and ping pong.

Our staff and members creatively fashion all the group topics, like Depression During the Holidays or Living Single.  Our arts and crafts have everything from making old fashioned wood toys to painting ceramics.  We have all supplies and tools for knitting, crocheting, leather working, beading, canvas painting, and other kinds of projects.



FUTURE DIRECTIONS COS IS TEMPORARILY CLOSED

​Future Directions is planning TO REOPEN the 2070 West 117th Street site on June 1st, 2021. There are several guidelines that must be adhered to when attending our program as outlined by Governor Mike DeWine of Ohio and the CDC. We will be comping with such so be prepared to do so as well when you visit.

Entering Facilities
• Ensure everyone, including employees, is screened for COVID-19 daily before entering the facility using DODD’s symptom monitoring log (https://dodd.ohio.gov/.../resource-covid-19-symptom...)
.• Maintain a daily log that includes the attendance of each participant including telephone number and address. Maintain the log for at least six months and make it available upon request to DODD, the Ohio Department of Health (ODH), or a local health department.

Reduced Capacity, Spacing
• Limit any services delivered in groups to 12 individuals per group. • This limit does not include employees or staff who are assisting the individuals.
• Groups must comply with social distancing requirements, including by maintaining 6-foot social distance.
• To the extent feasible, use cohorting of participants to minimize the risk of disease spread and adverse health outcomes. Cohorting is the practice of gathering participants together as a group who eat, travel, and participate in activities and services together.
• Facilities must determine cohorts, not to exceed 12 individuals, and assign the same staff to the cohort throughout the day.
• This limit does not include employees or staff who are assisting the individuals.

Sanitation
• Implement Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidance for cleaning, disinfecting, and sanitizing.
• Regularly clean high-touch surfaces.
