Dear Clients: If your family is in need of support from El Nido Family Centers, do not come to an El Nido center.
During these challenging times, we at El Nido hope that you and yours are healthy and coping with the constraints we are all facing as a result of the coronavirus.
We want to reach out and let you know how we are continuing to address the needs of vulnerable children and families. Our highest priority is their safety and health, as well as that of our dedicated staff. This is such a difficult time for all, on so many levels, especially for those in the communities we serve.
Our case managers, counselors, home visitors, and nurses are continuing to be an important and valuable resource to El Nido families, and are providing services remotely to ensure that they get the support they need. Families have expressed gratitude for continued support during this crisis. In addition, our FamilySource Centers are providing direct emergency funds and supplies for enrolled families. In the coming days we anticipate funds from the City of Los Angeles to enable us to provide emergency assistance to more people. In this event, we will likely need volunteers, and we will keep you informed.
We still have a long way to go before the US and world see our way out of this crisis, but the care and compassion we show to one another each day will help us all immensely in the short and long terms.
