MATCH Connect

Providing a foundation for Social, Emotional, and Behavioral Health!

Unprecedented Times
The COVID-19 Pandemic has caused tremendous stress and strain on adolescents. The isolation of social distancing and personal loss of family and friends had an impact. Financial hardships associated with parental unemployment have led to the inability to provide basics including housing, utilities, food, transportation, and healthcare. Additionally, difficulties associated with remote instruction have resulted in unprecedented family stress.
