Emergency Response for Children, Youth, and Families

Campaign Ends June 30, 2020

We have been adapting our programs to continue to provide services for our members and the community at large, while still maintaining all social distancing and cleaning/sanitizing recommendations by our health officials.

We are continuing to offer food programs and hampers and child care. We are raising funds to help create emergency hampers for our Youth and purchase food for our other programs (listed below).

Power Start Program- We are offering drop-off breakfasts to all our Power Start families at 4 schools, 3 days per week. This is for school-aged kids that have already been registered through their school.

Licensed Child Care- We are open at John Tod Centre Monday to Friday for care for infant/toddlers, ages 3-5 years, and school-aged group care. We are also offering all care for essential service workers; they don’t have to be currently registered or a member of the Club to access these services. The school-aged group care is registered weekly and open to the community. We are maintaining smaller groups and have a lot of safety protocols in place.

Youth Programs - We have our Youth Leader and Life Skills worker onsite Monday to Friday 12pm to 4pm to support any essential needs for youth such as connection to services, resources, food hampers, hygiene products, housing, etc. On Friday nights we are offering a "Grab and Go" dinner from 5-6pm for any youth under age 24 in the community. Youth can go to the youth room doors at John Tod Centre.

Family Programs- We are currently offering a Grab and Go dinner for Friday Family Nights 5:00 to 5:30pm and we are looking at ways to bring our parenting programs online to be offered virtually. Families have to sign up via our Facebook page before Wednesday. Pick up is at the youth room doors at John Tod Centre.
