Coronavirus Resources

Our organization was founded on the principle of creating a sanctuary, a safe place for students and families to learn, find joy and “break bread,” and that remains true today as we face growing public health concerns.

We know that this is a very challenging time for everyone, especially for children and families in vulnerable communities. These are fluid times that require us to come together, to be solution architects to address the challenges around food insecurity and health, as we learn in real-time what it will mean to maintain our well-being.

For our children, families, and educators who are transitioning to online and remote instruction, here are free resources available to you.
