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.

OUR COUSIN WALLABY!

Our little cousin Wallaby intervenes in the most stressful situations for parents, such as when a family must leave their home following a disaster. For example, if you are the victim of a disaster following a fire, water damage, flood, criminal act or if your home has been vandalized. Our cousin Wallaby can help you bounce back financially through her emergency fund by offering you, for example, the installation of an alarm system, an initial rent payment to relocate you or emergency lodging.

LITTLE BROTHER SKIPPY

At Kangaroo House, we care about the well-being of parents and their children. This is why our little brother Skippy has in his paws an envelope containing the emergency fund to provide assistance to parents who are at the end of their resources. At the present time, we can note an increasing number of people experiencing situational emotional distress related to job loss, bereavement, divorce, separation, etc. This fund is also intended to help families with a parent, child or loved one requiring hospitalization following illness or surgery or during a period of convalescence. In this sense, Skippy will give you a helping hand, notably by covering certain emergency expenses such as daycare at home by a person of your choice or in a daycare service.
