OUR BIG BROTHER JOEY
At Kangaroo House, we are sensitive to the difficulties that front-line caregivers may encounter when they have to deal with irregular schedules or cannot afford unpaid leave. This pandemic period brings with it complexities that, over an extended period of time, make caregivers more susceptible to burnout. That’s why the wonderful pocket that holds the Joey Fund is an emergency hotline for healthcare staff to offer direct and immediate assistance tailored to their urgent needs during this time of crisis and difficulty accessing non-standard child care. This fund allows us to provide financial support, such as paying for child care at home or at an agency that may receive children.
