How You Can Help Gemma During the COVID-19 Crisis

To our friends, Like you, we are very concerned about the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak in our communities. On top of our minds are the effects of the pandemic on the children and families we serve who need our support now more than ever, and on our dedicated team who continue to work tirelessly to help our clients each day.

Mental Health Challenges Continue. This is certainly a scary time for all. For those with mental health challenges, it is even more so. The children and families we serve are often one step away from crises, and now, even more so. Many are struggling with food insecurity and other difficulties of daily life that are currently exacerbated. We are steadfast in our commitment to be here for them as best we can. You Can Help. We have heard from many of you with concerns for and offers to assist Gemma to help our kids and families. We can only predict so well what we may need in the coming days, but here are things we know will support our work at this time. We appreciate anything you can contribute to help Gemma respond to urgent needs as they arise.

Ways you can help today include:

  • Purchase an item from our Current Needs Wish List on Amazon that can help us respond to COVID-19 as needed. The wish list also includes fun items to engage our residential children and youth during this time.

Thank you for supporting our mission and work, particularly during this unique and challenging time. If you have any questions, please contact the Development Department via email or by calling 610-825-4440, ext. 3206.
