We already knew that raising brave, kind and healthy children took a village. That’s truer now than ever!
No community has been immune to the impacts of COVID-19 and the financial hardships that we are experiencing. Recent town-wide surveys tell the story of job loss, new challenges paying for the essentials- food, housing, utilities- and the mounting stress that families feel right here at home. You are worried about your children, the health of your loved ones and- most of all- you are worried that there is no end in sight. We are, too.
Tri-Town’s role in the long-term recovery of this community is clear: we want to make sure that every family has their most basic needs met. If you do not have the support system you need right now, please reach out. The wellbeing of each tri-town household is the measure of how well this community’s children will fare through the global pandemic.
We are advocating to improve the systems that serve you, so there are more ways to access the help that you need. We want to make sure that each
touchpoint with one of our partners- social services, school counselors or other agencies- is a chance to address underlying needs and connect to resources. Our own licensed therapist provides treatment for individuals or families, and we now accept Husky, Cigna and Anthem. We are also connected to an amazing network of specialists who can help those suffering with grief, depression, severe anxiety or addiction.
At Tri-Town, we are continually amazed by the resilience of the community and the adaptability of our local youth. They are rolling with the changes and finding creative ways to connect and learn together. We love meeting with kids virtually and are excited to support our teen leaders as they find their own role in the recovery efforts.
We are incredibly grateful to the local businesses and foundations that have supported our work through this pandemic- they are listed to the right. If you are able, please join them! Make a donation to Tri-Town Youth Services’ Annual Appeal today. All of the funds raised will go directly to supporting children, teens and parents in the year ahead.
