Learning Reimagined


 

 

Last year taught us all the importance of essential workers, but one of the titles that sometimes gets lost is Mom and Dad. Parents everywhere had to adjust to the new normal of their children being home all the time. That most likely meant a messy house, food constantly being eaten, and virtual learning. Typically, most families rely on the school to provide lunches, technology, and most importantly lessons and activities. Sarah, our Supported Parenting Director, describes the difficulties her clients were having, such as grieving the loss of a loved one, no in-home internet, and not fully being able to help their kids with schoolwork as they have disabilities of their own. Sarah and her staff are there to be a support sytem, motivator, and offer a sense of normality and routine. Because of community partnerships, staff helped access computers, food, and household items for families. "We don't show up empty handed," Sarah shares. She points out the need for Supported Parenting in our community, and how much of a difference it makes that we go to them, as her clients can't drive, or don't have a car. "Someone has to be there for moms and dads."
