Families are going through unprecedented challenges this year due to COVID 19. The Federation continues to be a beacon of hope and support during these challenging times.
During this crisis, we have reshaped all of our services. We have been presenting daily Facebook Live for up-to-date information on special education and remote learning, moved all of our workshops online, and compiled COVID-19 and Remote Learning resources on our website. And most importantly, we have continued to pick up the phone and answer your emails.
As families prepare for school in the Fall, we will continue to inform, support and advocate.
Our annual gala is our most important fundraiser. Please support us so we can continue to support families across Massachusetts.
