we're here for you

CLOSED FOR NOW

 

In light of all that is going on in the world regarding Coronavirus/COVID-19, we want to encourage you to be proactive. The safety of our community is dear to our hearts; it IS our heart. The safety of the children we see and of our volunteers is of utmost importance.

As schools, daycares, and businesses close, we will also be doing so on account of the same concerns and recommendations. In addition, Hope Haven has a weekly hourly threshold; we are not permitted by the state to offer care that can replace the daytime need of daycare. We will reopen to continue our mission to be a safe place as soon as possible!

We understand that this is a stressful time for parents and families as all of our worlds are being rocked by closings of all kinds. We know incomes may be affected and standard household needs may become hard to obtain, all on top of hard, real-life, existent struggles. We really do wish it was possible to be the solution to our community during this season.

Please know that there is always a list of resources below and we hope you will reach out to us if your family has a need during this time and in the days to come. We will try to help in any way we can while the nursery is closed.

using the nursery:

 

It's like your child is going to your friend's house or to the grandparents'! We know parenting can be hard, especially when life gets tough. We want to help!

Contact us (call/text or use Facebook Messenger) and tell us what your need/situation is. There are no income requirements. If the nursery has availability, you will need to fill out some brief paperwork so that we know a little about your child and how to reach you. Children will be checked-in on arrival and you will be given a computer-generated code specifically for your child—you’ll need this code in order to pick up your child and to call/text for updates. You do not need to bring food or diapers unless your child has a specific need. We will also have clothes along with toiletries and bedding. We want to make it as easy as possible. Drop-off paperwork is void after 14 days. Refiling for continued occasional, short-term childcare will be at the Board's digression. Our operating hours can't exceed 15 hours per week. We rely on volunteer staffing, so the number of volunteers we have on a given day and their availability may also restrict our ability to provide service in every instance. We are happy to accommodate and schedule requests in the order they are received, with these limitations in mind.

 

If your child has special needs, it is likely our nursery may not be equipped and volunteers may not have the specified training to ensure the safety of your child. We hope to educate ourselves in this area as we grow.
