Service Name: Teen Leadership Development
Organization Name: YMCA OF SILICON VALLEY
- Description: Note for Coronavirus response period:
Our offices, health and wellness facilities, and all normal programs are currently closed. Our Member Support team is assisting members from 10am-2pm on weekdays.
We have redeployed our wellness facilities and several of our school sites to be Community Response Centers, providing the following services.
. Critical Care for Essential Workers' Children - Staff and facilities provide emergency care for the children of medical providers and first responders. Starting on March 23, two sites with the collective capacity to serve 200 children will open at our El Camino YMCA and the Morgan Hill Unified School District. A third site will open on March 30 at our Southwest YMCA. These care centers will follow strict guidelines in accordance with the Public Health Department. As the need and funding becomes available, additional facilities and staff will be redeployed to open more sites.
. Child Nutrition Sites - With schools closed, many children and families need access to healthy meals. In partnership with Child Nutrition Services, Second Harvest Food Bank, and several schools, we distribute essential food to children and families in need through drive-up and pick-up stations.
. Blood Donation Stations - Currently working with the Red Cross to set-up stations for individuals to donate blood. The first station is anticipated to open at our South Valley branch within the coming week.
. Hot and Healthy Meals for Seniors - Ensuring that our most vulnerable population impacted by COVID-19, older adults, still has access to healthy meals. Staff teams are making home-cooked meals, packaging them, and running them out to the cars of mobile adults and caretakers. More than 120 meals are currently being distributed daily at sites in Gilroy and Morgan Hill.
