Tough Times Support Kit - Resources for Kids and Families

This has been an especially difficult year for so many reasons, and there will likely continue to be struggles and challenges for some time to come. We acknowledge that the effects of the pandemic, ongoing racial injustice and the economic recession are being disproportionately experienced by Black and Brown families. We offer these resources to support children's well-being during these tough times, by providing peace, comfort and joy, and a sense of self-empowerment in the face of uncertainty. Find the rest of the Tough Times Support Kit here.

Resources for Comfort and Joy

When times are tough, it can help to have go-to resources for bolstering kids’ spirits. These books and activities can help provide a sense of comfort, joy and fun.

Resources for Self Empowerment

Kids need to know what is happening in their world, and what they can do to stay strong, informed and prepared to make a difference. These resources address some of the challenges facing today’s kids, and ways that they can gain a sense of self-empowerment to understand and tackle them.
