Ways to Help Now During COVID-19/ Coronavirus

Make a Donation

While Kingsley House staff may not be in the classroom, the adult day care center, or in participant homes throughout the community, they are actively engaging with our families.

 

  • Family Advocates are making calls to and collecting information about the needs of our families, sharing information regarding community resources such as ready.nola.gov and 2-1-1 as well as ways to cope.
  • Teachers are developing and implementing effective methods to provide virtual learning for our children.
  • Certified Nursing Assistants are placing calls to at-risk seniors, veterans and medically-fragile adults twice a week, conducting health checks.
  • CNAs are hosting zoom health education lessons, allowing seniors to connect with their friends and feel less isolated. This social connectedness is vitally important during this time of social distancing.

Staff will continue ongoing outreach and connectivity with families and are committed to addressing not only their immediate needs, like cleaning products, diapers and personal care items, but also addressing the challenges many will likely face in the near future.

  • Many need assistance in applying for benefits and services; while others are in need of mental health services.
  • Families will not only experience the loss of a family member, but a family member that also may have provided physical and emotional support as well as support for transportation or child care.
  • Parents and care givers will experience job loss of one or two full-time and/or part-time jobs. And for those that had begun on the path toward economic self-sustainability via our Kingsley Connections Career program, they may experience disruption of skills training and educational attainment, and the loss of progress made in building an emergency fund or savings.

If you are in the position to make a donation to support our work and the basic supplies of our families, we would be most grateful.
