Helping People… Changing Lives

For Client and Staff health and safety, the MEO Office has been closed to all in-person traffic by appointment since the beginning of the pandemic – but on Tuesday, Aug. 10, 2021, MEO will open to limited in-person traffic. Staff will continue to be available by phone and email. Appointments still are encouraged.

If you are not feeling well, please stay home and email to discuss your individual needs, and we will contact you.

If you do not have the ability to email us, to minimize your hold time, please contact the department you need assistance from directly and only contact the Administration office if you are not sure who to contact. We will do our best to respond before the end of business on the day that you call.

All MEO staff and clients are required to wear facemasks at all times when meeting in-person and when on MEO vehicles.
