Strengthening Families Campaign: The addition of formal child-centered 2 Generation programming

During the course of the global pandemic, our youth and families bore the brunt of the impact, including loss of employment, inadequate support in remote learning transition, and significant threats to physical and mental health.

As a response, we added enhanced family support elements, such as weekly food assistance, weekly caregiver check-in and respite, and technology and remote learning support to better stabilize our community.

What we learned in this crisis is what we have known all along – children thrive when their caregivers thrive. It demonstrated and underscored the power of a 2Gen model—that of supporting the whole family by intentionally and simultaneously working with our Achievers and their caregivers will result in greater stability and success for children and youth.
