“I can’t wait for 2020 to end.”
How many times have you heard this or said it?
A staggering number of lives lost. A deeply troubled economy. Shuttered businesses. Unemployment. Struggling families.
And yet, here we all are, thinking about and preparing to express our thankfulness, in every way we can.
We’ll start by saying that everyone at Hephzibah is so grateful to our generous donors who have enabled us to help the vulnerable children and families who have come to us in their time of need. We are only able to assist them because of you. Thank you.
We are also grateful for each other. Although many of us are working remotely, each day we find new ways to work with each other and with our clients, bringing us together as individuals, but also as a team working to promote our mission of helping children thrive and families flourish.
We are also profoundly grateful for our community which often feels more like a large extended family rather than a random group of individuals. Our ..
Did you know that more than 70% of Hephzibah’s staff, across our various departments, are designated essential workers?

The only way we can answer that question is through shared […]
Covid-19 has hit families hard.
But this is not Hephzibah’s first pandemic. We have been responding to the needs of families for 123 years, and we know what to do.
Hephzibah has made the bold decision to increase our services and grow our programs during this difficult time because it is what children and families – our community – needs.
We are doubling the number of families served who are struggling to provide safe, stable homes for their children. By providing parent coaching, emergency support, therapy services and critical referrals we are preventing child abuse and neglect by stabilizing families.
For our most traumatized children living at Hephzibah Home, we are supporting their unique e-learning needs and also adding additional therapists, social workers and caretakers to offer children the very highest level of care while they call Hephzibah their home.
We responded to a community need for safe, affordable childcare by creating a full-day program supporting e-learning an..
