COVID-19 Information

We are working diligently to provide our community with the same quality programming and services they expect from Spence-Chapin during the COVID-19 pandemic. We know that this is a difficult time for many of the women, children, and families we serve and we want you to know that we are here for you. We have lowered barriers to accessing virtual coaching sessions with our licensed social work counselors; are continuing to process new adoption applications and are waiving fees for international adoption applications; are able to start your home study process at a reduced rate. We are also excited to offer our first virtual Bagels & Blox and Play Cafe for children and families! To continue to learn about these programs and more, please sign up for our temporary weekly update email. You can also continue to check our COVID-19 Updates page for current information. We are all in this together! 

The summer of no outside

This book helps explain to children that they might not be able to go outside and play, and everyone is keeping more distance than before. It is also for parents to understand that you’re not alone, and hopefully, help you communicate and grow with your children at the same time. Book proceeds benefit families impacted by the health and economic impact of this global crisis.
