A Kid’s Place has formally submitted the request below. 

Requested Need As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, all children residing at A Kid’s Place residential foster care facility are no longer in school 5 days a week, which requires us to hire additional childcare and provide additional food and supplies during this time. The children we serve have been abused, neglected or abandoned, and in order to serve them effectively we maintain a standard 4:1 ratio of adults to children. It will be especially important to give our children additional attention during this stressful time to avoid adding emotional distress or trauma on top of what they have already experienced. As detailed below, over the next 12 weeks we will incur an additional $16,776 in childcare expense, $35,858 in food expense and $3,500 in academic expense to address E-learning technology requirements.
Fund Use Funding will be used to cover the following:

Childcare: Additional staff: 79 hours/week @ $12/hour * 12 weeks = $11,376. Overtime for current staff: 25 hours/week @ $18/hour * 12 weeks = $5,400.
Total Childcare Expense: $16,776

Food: 2 additional meals/day @ $1.68/serving * 22 days * 80 children = $5,914/month * 3 months = $17,742. In Kind Food & Supplies normally provided by Corporate Drives held during the months of March/April/May that have now been cancelled = $18,116. (based on numbers from the same months in 2019)
