At a time when we reflect and give thanks, I'm concerned about kids and their families living through this pandemic. I'm worried about the isolation they experience from friends and family, about food and housing insecurity, the anguish of losing loved ones to this devastating virus, and about their academic setbacks.
That's why, at Home Visit Project, we're partnering with our network of incredible educators to give families and children the support they need right now. Not only are our educators staying in close contact with families and caregivers – calling and texting to ask how families are really doing – but they're also making sure none of their students are going hungry by partnering with local food providers to deliver baskets of meat, produce and household items to their doors.
Watch the short video below to hear Home Visit Project educators talk about how our program has helped them form meaningful virtual connections with families and make sure their students’ needs don’t go ignored.
