MCHC continues providing services during this difficult time. We are grateful for your support. Our program participants are receiving services remotely during this public health crisis either through (IVC) interactive video conferencing using WhatsApp application to have two way, real-time, audiovisual communication between MCHC staff members and Family (parent and target child and others) or through telecommunication (audio phone calls) and following the guidelines from "Parents and Teachers curriculum" during this difficult time; ensuring staff is able to share important COVID-19 information as the situation evolves. Our staff is able to support the majority of parents who are at home with their children and provide them with interactive activities that are conducive to their children’s learning and development. In addition, the staff is directing and providing different resources including healthcare access to families in different communities. Your generosity is making a huge difference in the life of many children. We are providing support to families around the County with basic items including diapers, formula, personal care items, and food box donations. Just in the past month, MCHC staff have delivered over 85 food boxes from Chester County Food Bank, diapers, formula, and other baby items and we estimate an increasing need in the coming weeks. Family Benefit Specialists continue doing Health Insurance and SNAP benefits enrollments on a daily basis. While many other local human service organizations are closed as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak, our capacity to support families virtually allowed us to adjust our program structure within a week. Support from donors like you will enable us to sustain our program infrastructure and support our staff as we continue serving vulnerable families in our community.
