Whatever their life circumstances, every child needs and deserves to have at the very least a few caring and trusted adults in their life.

For children and youth, it can sometimes be difficult to go to family members or teachers for support. For some, making friends with peers is challenging so they rely even more on adults to help them build the social skills and self-esteem that can lead to more peer friendships. At a time when personal connections are more complicated by the pandemic, having a caring adult they can rely on and enjoy creative activities with from a distance is even more important.
