Nurtury has been working around the clock to respond to the changing needs of our employees, families, and communities. Since the Governor’s announcements temporarily closing all schools and child care centers, the Nurtury team has pivoted to focus on how we best support the 1,000 families normally served by our six child care centers and 130 family child care network members, during this extended closure.
These times urgently demand that we consider what life looks like for families now and when this public health crisis has passed. We know that many of our families are struggling already to access basic necessities – diapers, formula, food, and sanitation supplies. We also know that child care is a crucial need for our frontline health care staff, first responders, and other essential workers. It is Nurtury’s mission to help, especially in times of great need:
- We are staying connected to Nurtury families through phone calls and personal outreach, sharing remote learning tools and opportunities, and we are working to provide basic essentials to our highest-need families.
- We opened one of our centers located close to the Longwood Medical Area as an Emergency Child Care site to provide care to the children of health care and other priority workers as well as our most vulnerable families.
The only way to get through this is together. Please make a donation today.
