A Statement Regarding COVID-19

Visit our hub for helpful resources during this time.

We hope that our StreetWise family is healthy as we navigate these challenging times. As the COVID 19 situation evolves, we are committed to adapting to support our community as best we can.

Here is an update:

– We will delay Spring programming until May and will (hopefully) run from May to August. We will adjust should we need to push back to a later date.

– We are conducting a needs assessment with our mentees. In circumstances like these, gaps in income, resources and flexibility become even more glaring. Our mentees are facing multiple challenges related to finding employment: managing unpaid time off, identifying child care for their children and managing household expenses on limited budgets. We are committed to serving as a resource and support system for our mentees and will do everything we can to ensure stability for them and their families.

– Over the next few months we are going to do what we do best – build community. We are hosting webinars, virtual coffee chats, and sharing additional resources to bring together our mentors, mentees, non-profit partners and corporations. See below for our upcoming events!

There are many things we can’t control in this situation. But what we can control is our response. We know that now more than ever it is important to come together as a community and be creative, innovative and transparent about the challenges we are facing. Please reach out with thoughts, ideas, or concerns as we take this on, together.

Stay healthy!
