Crittenton Centers is finding new ways to serve those in need
3/27/2020 8:00 AM
It is amazing how quickly a situation can change when a crisis hits. Within the past week alone, families and individuals everywhere have been experiencing the effects of the Coronavirus pandemic. We hope this finds you safe and healthy!
What many people don’t realize is that preexisting crises don’t necessarily go away when another crisis hits. For some, the current global pandemic has disrupted their life, but for other families, the situation has only stacked on top of other stressors, such as mental health, financial struggles, and employment issues. This shows up in multiple ways such as anxiety/depression, not having the resources available to afford even basic necessities for themselves when store shelves are fully stocked, and not having consistent employment.
While adhering to the current shelter-in-place order, Crittenton Centers is providing a 24-hour crisis hotline, telecommunication for consistent meetings with families in our care, free curbside pickup of formula and diapers twice a week, and online daily resources links and activities such as storytime with familiar faces to help reduce stress.
To keep up with the latest from Crittenton Centers during this current time of crisis, please like our page on Facebook, Instagram, and check our website for important updates. As always, we are thankful for our donors and volunteers for helping us provide for those in need. For those looking to help contribute to our mission of protecting children and families, we kindly ask that you submit your donations to support our programs such as the Crisis Nursery hotline and Family Services telecommunication services to continue and through our registries at Amazon and Walmart.
Thank you again for your continued love and support during this time of global crisis. Please exercise caution during this time of uncertainty, and stay safe and healthy.
