E-Blast: Amerigroup Training Opportunity: COVID 19 in Care: Community Support for Congregate Care Living Facilities and Caregivers

July 20, 2020 11:33 AM

Dear Providers:
Children and youth in foster care have often survived a lifetime of uncertainty and change, both before entering foster care and during placement in foster care. For these children, changes like physical distancing during COVID-19 can trigger traumatic memories or symptoms.

During the coronavirus pandemic, caring for children in foster care can be even more challenging than the usual day-to-day care given by parents, foster and kinship caregivers, and child welfare professionals. Many of these children have experienced adversity and trauma, leaving them more vulnerable to the changes that come with school closings, lack of daily contact with friends and mentors, and other forms of social distancing. Join our panelist as we discuss ways to support youth in care during COVID-19 living in group home settings and foster home placements.
