COVID-19 Wreaks Havoc, Emergency Funds Needed

I wouldn’t normally send an email like this, but desperate times call for desperate measures. COVID-19 is having a huge impact on everyone, and we hope that you and your family are safe and healthy.

 

For those we serve, the consequences are already devastating. County wide school closures, restrictions on family visitation, and limitations of face to face services and activities are having an impact on our youth. Sadly we no longer have to imagine what it’s like during a worldwide pandemic, but many of us still can only imagine how this must feel for a child, especially a Chamberlain’s child.

 

Will you make an urgent gift today to help continue the life changing programs at Chamberlain’s Youth Services?

 

So far, we are supporting four fulltime direct care staff members who are no longer working due to high risk factors. If the projected spread of this virus holds true, Chamberlain’s Youth Services will lose many more caring staff in the coming weeks. The cost of recruiting, hiring and training, combined with the imminent cost of surging overtime is more than most non-profits can afford. Our youth depend on our frontline staff like they would a parent for care, safety, nurturance, and emotional well-being.

 

Your support today will ensure that Chamberlain’s youth and staff will continue receiving the support they so desperately need. Every dollar and every day counts.
