Many of our families are out of work. Some have family members who are sick and need additional care. And kids at home are requiring more supervision and oversight.
And for many of our families, the regular support services they count on are interrupted.
But at Spaulding we have not forgotten our families. We have just modified how we support them.
And you can help
What We are Doing to Help Our Families
- Moved our support groups and trainings to virtual meetings.
- Weekly check-in calls with families to assess well-being and to determine needs.
