Dress Purple Day on October 27 is an opportunity to make sure families, especially those facing additional hardships during COVID-19, know that there are resources and services available to help them.
This year more than ever, the COVID-19 pandemic has created additional stressors for families, and in some cases has increased risk for the well-being and safety of children and youth. Ontarians in need of help are encouraged to reach out to the services available in the community, or if they know a young person or family in need of support.
Please learn about the resources and supports available to families in the community.
We all have a role to play in caring for and supporting children, youth, and families.
