PRC Covid-19 Family Support Initiative
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. Our program workers indicate that at least 30 families, over half of our active clients, are already in crisis.
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. These items come from our community cupboard which was established to provide essential items in difficult times, and we are so happy to be able to help in this unprecedented crisis. Your support helps infants, children and parents with essentials to fill the gaps until other community services can help.
PRC is seeking your financial support to help families purchase essential items in this emergency. Together we can ensure vulnerable families are not hungry and can be prepared to keep their family safe by handwashing and sanitizing as needed.
Anything you can contribute will be extremely helpful and very much appreciated.
Donations can be directed to four main areas, the baby cupboard, child cupboard, community cupboard or to front-line needs.
Your generosity and kindness is what makes Ottawa strong.
