How to help CHILDREN AT RISK: Take a look – there are lots of ways!

CHILDREN AT RISK
First, I want to say thank you. Thank you for believing and supporting the mission of CHILDREN AT RISK, and the work we do to ensure that every child in Texas lives a quality life.
 
Over the past 30 years, CHILDREN AT RISK has grown exponentially in our capacity to speak out and drive change for children. During this Coronavirus pandemic, we look to continue leading efforts to understand the health, safety, and economic impact of the virus on our children and families; and work with stakeholders and policymakers to ensure that the needs of children and families are met. As the number of confirmed cases grows, we are drawing upon lessons learned from our efforts post Hurricane Harvey
 
Our team has developed and launched a 3-point strategy. I’m proud to share it with you below: 
 
 
INFORM
Parents, partners, and policymakers of resources and best practices.
 
Through blog posts, media partnerships, our website smartparents.org and social media, including Facebook Live interviews, C@R will keep parents and caregivers up-to-date on accurate information and resources available. 
 
School nutrition programs play a critical role in the lives of our students and at-risk communities. This week, C@R released the 2020 Kroger School Food Rankings, highlighting districts that are doing an excellent job ensuring Texas students are getting nutritious meals throughout the normal school day, but also in times of crisis such as the current pandemic.
 
 
COLLABORATE 
with nonprofit & community leaders across sectors.
 
C@R is spearheading the Coronavirus-Children’s Resiliency Collaborative (C-CRC) made up of 60+ child-focused organizations, working to ensure all efforts to support our most vulnerable are coordinated and have the greatest impact.
 
 
ADVOCATE
for policies that protect our most vulnerable families.
 
C@R has collected initial child and family-focused recommendations through various state and local policy conversations; especially around early childhood education, and will continue to do so as the crisis develops.
 
Additionally, after careful consideration and adherence with the recent Houston Health Department recommendations and Harris County’s Stay Home Work Safe order, the leadership at CHILDREN AT RISK, along with our Board of Directors, Event Chairs and Host Committee, have decided to host our Big Brunch event as a virtual event rather than in-person. It will include live video streaming and interactive mobile auction bidding.
 
We request that you still plan to join us on April 19th for this fun virtual gathering that will support the important work of CHILDREN AT RISK. We look forward to sharing additional details soon. 
There are four things we would love for you to consider during this time: 
 
  • Visit and share our website https://www.smartparents.org/ and www.childrenatrisk.org with parents or agencies that you know are looking for resources.
  • If you are an expert, consider joining us for one of our Facebook LIVE sessions on the coronavirus. Simply email info@childrenatrisk.org or reply to this email.
  • Join us at our virtual Big Brunch event on April 19th by purchasing a ticket or “hosting” a table HERE.
  • Consider becoming a CHAMPION FOR CHILDREN monthly donor, or make a one-time donation now. No matter the amount, we would be honored to have your support during this critical time as we continue to execute our 3-point strategy effectively.
 
I hope this information is helpful to you as we move forward with our efforts over the weeks and months ahead. CHILDREN AT RISK will continue to monitor federal, state, and local responses to this crisis and how they impact the lives of Texas children and families. We will also continue to share resources, best practices, and policy recommendations.
 
Our thoughts are with each one of you and hope you are all staying healthy and safe.
 
FOR CHILDREN!
 
 
Yours very truly,
 
Dr. Bob Sanborn
