Support Critical Front Line Staff in Covid 19

Children in Child Care
 

The Challenge

Essential frontline and health care workers need care for their children while they do their critical work to keep us all safe.

How We’re Helping

We’re providing emergency child care 24/7 so our heroes can work, knowing their children are safe and cared for.

The Challenge

Youth experiencing homelessness can’t stay safe at home. They’re struggling to meet their basic needs, including housing and food.

How We’re Helping

Our shelters give 65 youth a safe, warm place to sleep—and free supports to help them build brighter futures.

The Challenge

Newcomers are struggling to find their place — in the workforce and in our communities — as COVID-19 complicates their settlement journey in unprecedented ways.

How We’re Helping

YMCA Immigrant Services are now being delivered remotely to help newcomers improve their language skills, find work, and learn about their new home.

The Challenge

Loneliness and isolation are peaking among older adults, who are doing their best to protect themselves with some of the strictest physical distancing measures of us all.

How We’re Helping

Older adults can meet new people, exercise, enjoy their favourite activities, and try some new ones in our brand-new online community, The Bright Spot.

The Challenge

COVID-19 has led to unprecedented layoffs and EI applications. Physical distancing (while crucial for our health and safety) makes job searches tough.

How We’re Helping

We’ve moved our employment services online so job seekers can get help with everything from perfecting their resumes to preparing for virtual interviews.

If there's one thing you can be sure of in these uncertain times, it's that the YMCA will continue to step up. By donating to our COVID-19 Response Fund, you will be directly supporting our work on the frontlines.
