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 and after school programming for 215 students. We offer this program at a sliding-scale fee basis because we are committed to serving all families, regardless of income.
We are all in this together.
