As the context of the COVID-19 pandemic begins to shift, so does the focus of the Keeping Families Strong during COVID-19 conversations hosted by the Colorado Partnership for Thriving Families and Illuminate Colorado.
During this week’s call, YMCA of Northern Colorado and Adelante Jeffco shared updates on what their support of families has looked like throughout the crisis so far, as well as what they are doing to prepare for the new needs that continue to arise as Colorado transitions to the Safer-at-Home Order and some communities begin to reopen.
We are inspired by YMCA’s continued efforts to provide child care for as many families as possible; and Adelante Jeffco’s volunteer-run navigation line for Spanish-speaking families, virtual “Grupo de Apoyo” for families with children with special needs, and virtual prenatal education series.
Detailed information on the work that each of these organizations is doing, as well as information shared by many other participants can be found in the notes from the call.
These conversations have been invaluable, and the Partnership is committed to ensuring that the collaboration, resource-sharing and inspiration that they have sparked continues.
Moving forward, the frequency of these conversations will shift to once a month, and they will be structured to focus on supporting families in the prenatal to one to align with the priorities of the Partnership.
