Children’s Institute unveils GROW Bus for community screenings
Children’s Institute recently designed and equipped a bus for our “Get Ready to GROW’ program and will soon be providing developmental screening for young children throughout the Finger Lakes region, once it is deemed safe to return to in-person services. Thanks to funding from FLPPS (Finger Lakes Performing Provider System) and partnerships with many community organizations, the GROW bus will allow us to reach families in a variety of settings to support young children’s healthy development. www.GetReadyToGROW.org
We stand and speak for racial justice and public health equity - together
Children’s Institute is committed to work towards the elimination of systemic and institutional racism, individual racism, and implicit bias. We don't stand silent. Silent isn't neutral. We stand and speak for racial justice and public health equity – together. Families with children in communities of color demand allies who support, understand, recognize, and transform personal discomfort into decisive action that promotes lasting change around these inequities. Visit the Racism and Social Justice page for more information and resources
COVID-19 Resources for Families
Children’s Institute knows that children’s social emotional health is greatly impacted by times of anxiety and the recent news about COVID-19. Visit our resources page on how to share information such as this with young children as well as other useful topics to help children and their families navigate through the current situation.
PLEASE NOTE: You can continue to reach any Children's Institute staff member by calling 585-295-1000 or through email. We are working at this time from home offices and will respond in a timely manner.
