COVID-19 UPDATES & RESPONSE

Bryan’s House is currently providing robust COVID-19 crisis intervention and triage for crisis-caught families, with one or more children at home with special needs, while we shelter in place. All onsite classes are being conducted virtually.

Emergency Funding

With our COVID-19 FUND, we are meeting emergency needs - providing our families with rental, utility, telephone and transportation and other basic items as necessary.

Mental Health

  • The mental health of our families is so important to us. We have a 24-7 hotline for crisis intervention. Click here to email Marilyn Quinones for more info.
  • We are also taking new cases where a psycho-social assessment of the parenting problem/needs of the family is being conducted.
  • Using a person-centered approach, our case management team has been monitoring progress toward family self-sufficiency during this challenging time using a customized plan .

Vital Services

  • Connecting families to primary care providers and medical homes.
  • Linking families to specialty care and therapeutic services that is accessible and affordable.
  • Coaching families during this emergency about financial planning and budgeting.
  • Being advocates for kids’ services and guidance for parents on navigating systems to ensure they are being heard, especially now when so much is unknown.

  • We have been holding emergency drive thru’s— providing distribution of food, diapers, hygiene products and other essential items.
  • We are also providing clients with access to other goods and services through collaborations with our community partners.
