While the landscape is changing daily, our nimble programs team is quickly adapting our offerings to best serve our kids. Here’s how your donations are helping vulnerable children and families stay resilient and strong during the COVID-19 Pandemic.
Moorelands Kids’ Lead ON
The virtual delivery of our programs: learning, leadership and a variety of fun activities children and families can do at home through videos and interactive sessions. We know our kids have many questions and are missing their friends and community. Trusted mentors play a big role in kids’ well-being; our secure online meet ups between participants and staff are a chance for kids to reconnect with their familiar staff leaders and friends and continue to develop the Habits & Qualities that set them up for success.
