“Thank you so much for everything! During such a stressful and difficult transition you managed to fulfill your duties to the best of your abilities with genuine intention. I admire your dedication to the field. Please continue to be a presence for others.”
He [a 46-year-old Hispanic father] reminded Ms. Knowles during intake she shared a quote “the worst part about being strong is that no one never asks if you’re ok” he presented social service staff with a plaque that stated the exact quote.
"To All Staff at Children’s Rescue Fund, From the bottom of my heart, I want to say thank you for making my stay a pleasant one. Many do not know how powerful smiles, understanding and kind gestures are. This has been an extremely painful year for me, so I expected something much different upon my arrival. Again, I thank you all for making my stay and my daughter’s stay a pleasant one, which I know is not easy to do when working in social service."

Our COVID-19 Response

2020 has been a difficult time for all of us with the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic. Throughout this crisis, the safety and wellbeing of our clients and staff have been our utmost priority. Children’s Rescue Fund has provided personal protective equipment to clients and staff, we continue to practice the universal health care precautions, and social distancing recommendations to ensure that families experiencing homelessness receive uninterrupted service during these challenging times.

Sadly, homelessness does not end during a health care crisis; it becomes more traumatic, as the outcome is unknown. As a transitional housing provider, our staff is essential. Therefore, I would like to thank each and every one of the employees who continue to report to work in spite of the risks to ensure that our client’s needs are met, and they receive the support required to make it through each day.

Be safe and take care

Orlando Ivey
CEO, Children’s Rescue Fund
