We are calling on our community to support our staff and client families during this health crisis. Please consider donating to Wonders & Worries and ensure that families will continue to receive the help they need.
Most of the families we serve are immuno-compromised, thus heightening their anxiety regarding the corona virus. Their children are likely hearing concerning media reports and anxious adult conversations. Certainly all are experiencing changes in routine. This impinges on the children’s sense of felt safety and it is important that we act now. This is a crucial time. Our free services are needed more than ever and we have adapted our delivery to meet the immediate need in our community. Wonders & Worries needs your help.
Text “Donate” to (205) 649-5836 to make an immediate donation and help us provide virtual services during the Covid-19 health crisis.
We are extending our national helpline (844-WE-WONDER) hours to Monday-Thursday from 10:00-4:00 PM CST. We are offering virtual support with certified child life specialists via video to children and teenagers 5-18, as well as guiding parents in facilitating in-home sessions for children ages 2-18. We will be sending kits to clients for those items necessary for the session that a family would likely not have already.
