COVID-19 Update: Continuing to Be Here When Families Need Us Most

Posted: March 24, 2020

Last week, KidsAbility made the difficult decision to suspend all face-to-face visits with children and families. This was such a hard thing for us to do but a step that we knew was necessary to keep everyone safe.

Since then, many of our staff began working from home although some chose to continue to work from KidsAbility. Following Premier Ford’s announcement yesterday to close all non-essential workplaces, we will do one final clean of our sites, and close our doors to do our part for the next 14 days.

While we continue to practice safe social distancing and social isolation, we are also concerned about the children, youth and families that we work with. Thank you for your patience, understanding and cooperation as we got our staff set up in their new home offices.

 

What's Next?

We have been working very hard as we found our feet so we can continue to be here when you need us. Our teams are working on resources and new ways to support you and your child and look forward to sharing those with you on our website and through social media in the days to come.

Our teams have been reaching out to our families hosting appointments, coaching sessions and check-in meetings through technology. Although it is not ideal, for the next little while, this will be our new normal and one that we are adjusting to, as we know that you are as well.

Our team is here for you. Please connect with our team through email or by leaving a voicemail with any member of your child’s team. Please know that although we may not be in the office, we are still here and still ready to support you.

This is a difficult time and we will continue to look to our Government, Public Health and professionals for guidance as we navigate our new path forward.

 

We're Here. How Can We Help?

Please let us know how we can help you. What resources would be helpful? What can our team do to support you? We want to hear from you. We will be innovative, creative and get through this together.

Brighter futures happen here and we look forward to when we can open our doors and welcome all of our children, youth and families back, in person.
