During this unprecedented time, we need your help more than ever. Your support helps us quickly transform how we provide services to Kidango’s children and families, many of whom are among the most vulnerable in our communities.
Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have:
Opened 9 emergency centers, including two at local hospitals, for the children of healthcare workers, first responders and other essential service providers in Santa Clara, Alameda and Contra Costa counties.
Provided over 18,000 meals for food insecure families at five regional hubs where we also distribute diapers, formula, baby wipes, and cleaning supplies for families living in poverty.
Implemented an emotional support hotline available in English, Hindi, Mandarin and Spanish for Kidango families and staff who are experiencing stress or trauma around this crisis, staffed by our behavioral health team.
Transformed our classroom experience to support families in bringing it to life at home with their children during the shelter-in-place mandate to ensure learning continues for our kids.
