To all our Tuesday’s Children families and friends,
We want to acknowledge that this time of uncertainty and the impact of coronavirus (COVID-19) in the U.S. and around the globe is affecting us all in varied ways.
Tuesday’s Children is committed to serving our families during this difficult period and remains steadfast in our mission. In order to continue our family-focused programs whilst respecting CDC recommendations for social distancing, we have transitioned to virtual programming for children and adults. Please see below for details. We hope you will join us and continue building bonds with others while staying home.
4/9 – 4/23; Family classes with age-appropriate sessions
Weekly through 5/19; Mindfulness for creativity and coping with uncertainty
4/16; Our Career Resource Center is going digital
7/13 – 7/17; Continuing to strength international friendships
How have our families been impacted by this crisis?
For the thousands of families we serve, including those in the 9/11 community, in Gold Star military families, and in communities impacted by terrorism and mass violence, the current public health crisis has many parallels to their previous trauma and loss. All of our families are subject to feelings of helplessness, anxiety over the unknown, bracing for what else might happen, the fear of whether those they know and love will be able to recover from the financial impact, let alone the medical impact. Many in our community have already been directly impacted by the current pandemic, and many of our families have essential workers who are helping to mitigate the effects of this crisis and slow the spread of the virus.
