With quarantine mandating time away from the classroom and usual activities, many children have struggled over the past year. Connecting for Kids aims to help local families find resources for a child who may have regressed socially, emotionally, academically or physically during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The free Cuyahoga County Resource Box is packed with information about local adapted summer camps, social skills programs, tutors, therapists and other services in Cuyahoga and surrounding counties for families of children ages birth – 12 years who are concerned about their child.
Resource Boxes are available for pick up at a number of area libraries from Saturday, May 1 – Saturday, May 8 (during regular library hours). Families must register for a box and indicate which library location they will use for pick up, by visiting connectingforkids.org/cuyahoga-resource-box, or call/text: 440-570-5908 (para español, 440-907-9130).
Pick-up locations include:
