“Anyone who does anything to help a child in his life is a hero to me.”
– Fred Rogers
Child Abuse Prevention Month is April
Youth and their families continue to face stressors induced by the COVID-19 pandemic as they grapple with the collateral consequences of the coronavirus – school and workplace closures, social isolation, and extensive situational stressors during these prolonged times of uncertainty. The Yolo County CAPC collaborated with school districts and youth service organizations to engage and empower youth to directly inform the process of curating a resource guide. Through a youth survey and focus group, the CAPC found that the primary concerns of youth include loneliness, stress, and anxiety. In response to these concerns, the CAPC has developed guides for youth and their parents/caregivers that provide resources to promote resilience, self-care, and personal growth.
In Yolo, we can all be heroes. No matter who we are, we can find ways to support children and families and build strong communities. We all have a role to play.
Sometimes we need help. Sometimes we have help to give.
When you’re able to offer support, click below to find out how you can help make Yolo families stronger.
