1. Emergency Child Care: A 24/7 operation was up and running in just days. We subsidized $285,596 in financial assistance to ensure children of essential workers had child care during the Safer-At-Home order.
2. Free Food Assistance: We have served over 457,000 meals to local adults and families through our free food sites. Many of our sites are still operating today as the need continues to grow.
3. Senior Support: We phoned 1,273 senior members to make sure they were doing alright, listen to their worries and ask about their needs.
4. Virtual Learning Support: As students returned to school through virtual learning, we created a full-day program so parents didn’t have to choose between working and keeping their children safe and academically engaged. 31% of our enrolled children are receiving financial assistance.
5. Modified Youth Programs: Socially distant and safe swim lessons and youth programs were brought back to give kids and families a small sense of normalcy.
6. Outdoor and Virtual Fitness: We are committed to keeping our community healthy and safe. We moved all our group fitness classes outdoors rain, snow our shine. We offer ZOOM and on-demand alternatives and have plans for a new virtual platform that will have something for all ages and skill levels.
7. Senior Services: Plans are in place for a new virtual platform that includes live and on-demand classes from fitness to educational series to arts and crafts, and much more. We will continue to re-establish connections and decrease social isolation.
8. Virtual Y Platform: We will soon be launching VIRTUAL Y; a free resource for our members that will offer fitness, arts, social time, educational series and more.
