The Parent Resource Centre supports over 70 at risk families who face multiple challenges and now they face the COVID-19 pandemic with limited resources. Our Family Resilience Program is seeing a sharp rise in crisis situations within these families.
Groceries and personal care items for parents, children and youth are urgently needed. These homes need critically important toiletries/personal care items such as baby wipes, diapers, deodorant, toothpaste, soap, shampoo, kleenex and toilet paper.
Together we can ensure vulnerable families are not hungry and can be prepared to keep their family safe by handwashing and sanitizing as needed.
Our program workers are estimating that at least 30 families, over half of our active clients, are already in crisis.
PRC is seeking your financial support to help families purchase essential items in this emergency.
AT THIS TIME, you can help vulnerable Ottawa families by donating to our Family Resilience COVID 19 FUND
Anything you can contribute will be extremely helpful and very much appreciated.
Additionally, if you know of any families in crisis or parents needing parenting guidance, mental health support or resources, in the Ottawa area, please share our Parent Support Line number with them.
