Santa Cruz is processing the effects of the recent ICE raids throughout our community as well as the uncertainty of the national political climate. While all children are affected by the fear and worry in the air, families of our documented and undocumented immigrants are particularly vulnerable. This uncertain atmosphere has a profound effect on the children in our care.

Topics include:

Observing signs of distress in children

Talking with children about what they are experiencing

Teaching parents how to support their children

Caregiver’s legal responsibilities

Putting a plan in place for families in case of emergency.

Support for caregivers under current stress.

Sponsored by Santa Cruz Sanctuary, Santa Cruz County of Education, and Community Bridges. Please call CDRC to register – 831-466-5820.
