Helping people cope with their emotions during these challenging times
Partnership with Children has been chosen to be a local program provider for NY Project Hope, the statewide crisis counseling response to COVID-19. Their crisis counseling team members are trained to help people understand and cope with their reactions and emotions to challenges of COVID-19. Through an emotional support helpline, educational materials, and trusted referrals, NY Project Hope crisis counselors help people do their best to manage the stress, isolation, grief, and the many other challenging emotions stemming from the pandemic.
