In this moment of crisis, the Children’s Defense Fund is unwavering in our mission to make sure the voices of children are heard and the needs of families are met with urgency. As we quickly adapt to meet the challenges of the COVID-19 crisis, Here’s what that looks like:
- We’re redirecting our policy advocacy, at the federal and state levels, to get children and their families the support they need to survive this crisis.
- We’re retooling our community-based programs like CDF Freedom Schools® to leverage virtual training and distance learning so that we can continue to provide essential education and enrichment for children across the country this summer.
- We’re ramping up our public education and outreach to make sure families know how to access life-saving resources and how best to support children through this difficult time.
To make sure we can quickly and effectively meet the needs of children in this unprecedented moment, we created the Children in Crisis Fund.
