The direct care staff from across CCHO and our family of ministries are faithfully serving children and families during this health crisis. Mental health and case management services are critical in keeping everyone safe and ensuring basic needs are met. Staff use technology to provide care as appropriate, but in-person services are required, especially in our children’s residential center.
Our organization is working hard to protect our staff and clients, following CDC guidelines, implementing safety protocols and distributing tools. Like many, we have a limited supply of personal protective equipment. This pandemic has called for a rise in creative problem solving. And we turn to you, our friends and supporters, to use your crafting abilities to help us keep CCHO as safe as possible.
We are looking for individuals to sew masks for frontline team members. Here is the link to a recommended pattern (source: USA Today and JoAnn Fabric and Craft Stores). Other versions may be accepted as well including masks that are sized for children.View the mask pattern

Our children’s residential center would also appreciate donations of the following supplies: isopropyl alcohol, hand sanitizer, Lysol cleaning and disinfecting products, bleach and wipes.
We are grateful for all that you can do and hope you and your loved ones are staying safe and healthy.
