Safe & Sound is here and working to protect children, strengthen families, and build community during this difficult time. At the top of our mind is the safety of vulnerable children and families.
Even in the best of times, parenting is hard. In a crisis, it can be overwhelming. With the added anxiety of loved ones becoming sick, fear of losing jobs and income, inability to pay rent, and severed community connections — family stress and tension can be at an all-time high. And, indeed, children are more at risk for child abuse and neglect.
I am writing to you today with an urgent request for your support for our families and our community. Safe & Sound is mobilizing every resource we have to provide ongoing and uninterrupted services to every single one of our families. We need your partnership to make this possible!
Here is just a snapshot of our response:
We are also collaborating in profound and effective ways with government, schools, and community partners locally and throughout the state to amplify our reach.
Our children need us. And, we need you.
I have never been more proud of our team for their courage and dedication to serve our community. And, I am honored by our families for the trust that they have given to us to show up when and where we are needed most.
While the full impact of this crisis cannot be fully imagined at this time, we know that families and children in our community need our help now. Thank you for always standing with us and for joining with us again today when our community needs us most!
