On March 18th we made our first post about COVID-19. Through our series we hoped to identify some key areas of concern to our foster care community, important information to be aware of, and places where individuals could get involved. For now, this will be our last COVID specific post, as we want to acknowledge where other organizations are committing time and resources to keep current information and opportunities available.
The organizations below will be keeping information that is COVID-19 & Foster Youth specific available for the foreseeable future:
Think of Us: provides information/resources/a place to submit needs for both foster youth and agencies. The link provided above is to their COVID-19 Command Center. Here's an additional link, Foster Youth (former or current) specific.
The Chronicle of Social Change: provides a constant feed of child-welfare specific news content, and the link above filters just to articles are COVID specific.
If you would like to help former foster youth during this time, please contact us!
We'd be happy to discuss ways you can get involved or donate directly to youth in need.
If you're a former foster youth looking for connections or help during this time, please contact us!
We'll do our best to connect with you and help get you in contact
with an organization meeting needs in your area!
