Our CEO Bela Moté is featured on Erikson Institute website on the topic of bringing our mission to life. Remotely. Here’s an excerpt from the article:

“When we went remote, we had to think of these things as parallel processes —there is the executive order, there’s nothing we can do, and then it’s how you bring your mission to life in a remote capacity. We work in some of the most underserved communities in Chicago, so any change in our services has a chain reaction [for] our families’ access: from very basic needs to child-centric, developmentally appropriate kinds of programs and services. Their children were not at home with them during the day, so they didn’t have to have essential items like diapers, wipes, baby food, formula. We had to factor in the cost for what it would be for families who have to provide for all of those things that they don’t have in their budget—with the reality that many have been furloughed or have jobs that get paid under the table. Whatever they get in terms of food stamps might not be enough to support the household need.”
