The Indiana Youth Institute in Indianapolis has established the Youth Worker COVID-19 Relief Fund. The organization says the $190,000 fund will provide direct support and relief to youth-serving professionals in Indiana who have been impacted by COVID-19.
The IYI says grants of $500 will be distributed to more than 350 youth workers throughout the state.
“We understand and acknowledge the strain that these unprecedented times can cause for our youth workers, communities and most importantly the youth we serve, Tami Silverman, president and chief executive officer of the IYI, said in a news release. “Our goal with the Youth Worker COVID-19 Relief Fund is to support the individuals who typically care for Hoosier children and youth.”
