The Wediko Fund – Your Help is needed more than ever!

Posted in: Blog  |  By:  | 
Greetings Wediko Community,
During the COVID-19 pandemic and this unprecedented time, Wediko Children’s Services is asking for your help.

How can you help our staff and mission move forward?
In the midst of the COVID 19 pandemic, Wediko has continued to provide intensive mental health supports to children, families and school communities in Massachusetts, New Hampshire and New York City.

Our staff is working diligently under extraordinary circumstances to manage the mental health concerns and basic needs of our children and families. We are inspired by the work that is already underway in each of our programs to respond to the new challenges we are facing. Mental health services during this critical time are a needed resource more than ever. Emergency psychological crisis interventions are taking place across the globe, and at Wediko we are working at capacity to do our part.

Thanks to our staff and their tireless efforts, remote supports for students and families due to school closures are under way in Boston and New York. Clinical and site-based teams have been meeting and developing support plans. The Wediko School remains open, both day and residential students. While some parents/teams have decided to keep students home during this crisis, teachers have been working to provide distance learning opportunities to ensure all students have access to their classes and IEP services.

As for our staff members, support, supervision and team meetings continue to occur and the use of technology is allowing us to stay connected even while we practice physical and social distancing. We are creating opportunities for all employees to have support when needed. By sharing our self-care practices, we are sustaining a sense of community that will allow us to continue our mission to heal and transform through the power of relationships.

Please consider supporting our ongoing efforts by making a gift today. You can help Wediko make a difference when it matters most.

We thank you in advance for your support. We hope that you and your loved ones are safe and healthy during this uncertain and anxiety-inducing time.

Wediko remains to be a resource to many communities in Boston, New York, New Hampshire, and beyond. If you have a request or need support, please contact us.
