Now more than ever we are called upon to make a difference. Since the beginning of this year, Dependency Advocacy Center has been appointed to represent hundreds of parents and children in Santa Clara County’s child welfare system, and we are just beginning to understand the profound and lasting impact of this pandemic on the families we serve. Under normal circumstances, the path to reunification is not an easy one, and our clients often struggle to overcome the effects that poverty, lack of resources, and marginalization have had on their communities. COVID has created new and more difficult challenges to keeping parents and children connected, while the digital divide impedes access to critical services that support family strengthening.
Giving Tuesday is a global movement–an opportunity for people around the world to stand together virtually and use their individual power of generosity to transform communities and heal. Whether it’s helping a neighbor, sharing a skill, or giving to causes that speak to you, every act of generosity counts.
