Your gift empowers children who have been impacted by the pandemic
What comes to mind when you think of your childhood summers? For many, memories of summer include playing outside for hours on end, swimming, camps, and cookouts bring smiles to our faces. Yet for children of divorce, summer memories also include bouncing from house to house, missing friends and family transitions.
Now our country is dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic with the devastating effects on jobs, family finances and schools closing resulting in parents becoming teachers and our children becoming our students. Summer 2020 is a time of great uncertainty.
Since 1996, Kids’ Turn San Diego has been serving families going through separation and we are helping in ways we never could have imagined. While no one knows or can predict our future, WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE RIGHT NOW for children!
During the Summer of 2020, we expect 75 families to attend our virtual Family Workshops for Separated and Divorced Families. Based on our experience from April to June, we anticipate that more than half of these families will request a COVID-related payment plan or a Tuition Reduction Scholarship. The COVID-19 payment plan requires a $50 deposit and a promise to pay the balance of $350 when they return to work. The Tuition Reduction Scholarship, requires the family to only pay $100 for the program and will receive a $300 Scholarship.
Thanks to our Sponsor a Child Heroes, several children and families have already been sponsored but the need far exceeds current support! THIS IS WHERE YOU CAN HELP! To make it possible for every child and family to attend our program without anyone worrying about finances, please make a gift to Kids’ Turn San Diego. You can provide a lifeline to these children and assure a brighter summer for them.
Kids' Turn San Diego strives to provide uninterrupted services and has successfully transitioned all our programs to virtual models. Costs are higher but we have NOT pushed a single cost out to a family. As COVID-19 continues to be among us and as we transition to a “new normal”, we ask you to make an investment in a child's future.
Your gift will ensure that the child feels happy, heard and understood.
WE can do this! Your gift of $700 sponsors children and two parents; your gift of $300 sponsors a child and their parent; and all other amounts sponsor a child. Just imagine, parents are listening to their children, engaging in fun activities, and children are smiling from ear to ear. YOU CAN MAKE THIS HAPPEN!
Please sponsor a child this Summer and create happier children and healthier families. COVID-19 cannot take this opportunity away from you. Become a Sponsor and BE A CHILD’S HERO TODAY!
