We know parents and caregivers are struggling to balance work, child care and self-care while helping their families to adjust to the new normal, as best as possible.  

Children look to adults for guidance on how to react to stressful events and for reassurance that they are safe.

The Children’s Advocacy Project has added a COVID-19 Resources page to its website to help parents and caregivers.

Please know you are not alone.  We stand ready to help keep our patients and the community healthy during the pandemic.

St. Christopher’s, along with all of the other hospitals in the Tower Health system, are proud to support the communities we serve during this unprecedented time of crisis for our region, our country, and the world. As we have worked tirelessly to keep our patients, employees, and community members healthy and safe, many have come forward to ask how they can help. We are humbled by your generosity and welcome your support to bolster our efforts against COVID-19.
