COVID-19 Faith-Based Outreach

Board of Child Care Faith-based Outreach during COVID-19 Crisis

The Board of Child Care (BCC) serves some of the most vulnerable populations throughout the MidAtlantic. BCC provides behavioral health services to children, youth, and families across a continuum of care, including residential, education, and treatment foster care. As an essential health care service provider, our staff are working around the clock!

We are grateful for our intimate connection with faith-based communities (especially the United Methodist Church), who continues to provide extraordinary support to our youth and their families. While staff attend to the needs of our youth, we are concerned about their well-being as they offer compassionate, trauma-informed care to our kids during this time of crisis. Most importantly, we need your prayers. In keeping with our tradition, we are reaching out to faith-based communities to assist us with the following items and emotional support as we care for one another at BCC.
