Families experiencing homelessness are being hit hardest because they have few resources to withstand the disruptions to daily life caused by the COVID-19 crisis.
I am hoping my FB family might accept the "5 to Thrive" challenge and donate $5 (or more) to help this population who truly do not have the resources to help themselves. Here are some of the ways your donation can help this MA based organization...
Providing gift cards to families so they can buy food while in shelter. We typically provide breakfast, lunch and snacks to the children in our centers so it’s imperative that we ensure they continue to have access to food.
- Helping families purchase diapers and other necessities that they can no longer afford if they lose their jobs.
- Our team of Family Advocates are connecting with families daily to identify their needs and share trustworthy sources of assistance while serving as a confidante and advisor for their family’s decision making.
- Keeping Playspaces in more than 90 shelters open and stocked with toys and cleaning supplies so children living in shelter have access to a safe place to play.
- Continuing to pay our teachers and family advocates during disruption of our operations to minimize impact on their families.
