Good morning Quest Community, we are doing our best to ensure continued connection with you while balancing our responsibility in mitigating risks of exposure. In light of that, we feel that in the interest of protecting our community and operating with an abundance of caution, all Quest locations are moving to telephone sessions for all individual appointments wherever possible and cancelling all group activities. We are enacting this operating plan for at least the next two weeks starting today.

Group cancellation includes: 

  • Group Acupuncture
  • Nutrition Night
  • Yoga and QiGong
  • Mental Health Groups
  • FSR Groups 
  • Social gatherings 
  • WOW
  • HIV Men's Group

Your provider will be in touch with you to engage in phone sessions, or if necessary, reschedule your appointment.

Our Deep Purpose

The world is a scarier, more uncertain place than usual. Quarantines, economic instability and political strife seem to be the new normal. Never before has the work of community-led nonprofits - promoting grassroots leadership, lifting up women's voices, providing access to the underserved, and otherwise creating resiliency - been more critical to creating a just, healthy and equitable society. And while corona concerns have us steering clear of one another, our collective work is a lynchpin that brings us closer together.
