Award Date: April 14, 2020
Awarded: $12,180
Citizens for Children & Families (CCF) is a central entity in bringing together public and private partners for the purposes of addressing persistent systemic issues within children’s services on a comprehensive and on-going basis. The Congregate Care COVID Support Grant provides funding that enables congregate care facilities to provide technology that allows youth to use Skype, Zoom or other platforms to have virtual visits with those who support and nurture them during quarantine through the COVID pandemic. Additionally, facilities provided MP3 players with headphones to each youth in care so that they can listen to music, read books and track steps to help pass the days.
