COVID-19 Impact on Families and Helpful Resources
Our lives have changed drastically with the Coronavirus recently. It is not unusual for families and individuals to feel scared, sad or angry. Being around each other everyday, can also put a lot of stress on the family. You might find you bicker more or have a shorter fuse than usual. Please take advantage of the resources that are available to take good care of yourself and your family both physically and emotionally.
Family Paths is offering a free, anonymous Parenting Stress Helpline that provides resources and support during this stressful time. Please do not hesitate to reach out to them at 1-800-829-3777 for support.
Please keep in close touch with your Licensing and Primary Care Workers and don’t hesitate to reach out to your County Parent Advocate, Demitruis Simms, if you have any general questions. His email is DSims@acgov.org and phone is 510-780-8946.
We are grateful for your continued dedication to the kids and youngsters that need you right now. Be well…
