Family Resources

Hi AFCHES families, 

As we continue to process the events that took place in Uvalde, Texas– we as the social work team wanted to provide you all with more resources and extra support on how to navigate the day and week. We know that you are your own experts with managing your feelings and implementing coping mechanisms, so these are extra tips in case you are feeling stuck.

We want to encourage you all to take time to process and honor your own feelings and emotions even before you navigate through a potential conversation with your scholars. This is important because we want to ensure that our scholars are not exposed to our own anxieties and can feel reassured and safe with our thoughts and feelings that we can verbalize in an age-appropriate manner. 

Know that you are not alone, and we encourage you to lean into your support systems as you continue to navigate and process this most recent event. Below are some resources that we hope can be helpful to inform next steps including having age-appropriate conversations with your scholar.
