Our COVID-19 Crisis Response
The Village has been leading a rapid response to the COVID-19 crisis. Here’s how:
We implemented an “Ask a Doc” free non-emergency information line where callers can speak directly with Village staff psychologist Dr. Lisa Backus for free. She answers questions and connects callers to additional resources if needed.
We redeployed our school-based staff to support food and technology distribution and distance learning for students at five Hartford schools. 7,000 laptops, hundreds of meals, and educational packets were given to students and their families.
We introduced virtual home visits to continue connecting with children and families, including developmental screenings, interventions, “snack and story” time, parenting groups, and preschool activities – supplemented with ongoing distribution of bags of hands-on materials.
We consulted with caregivers on interpretation of psychological testing results and Individualized Education Programs (IEP) to help guide at-home approaches to special education students.
We distributed literacy bags of books and learning materials to families with children enrolled at The Village’s Early Childhood Learning Center to help with at-home learning opportunities.
