COVID-19 (the new coronavirus) has challenged all of us. Parents and adult caregivers are vital for ensuring children continue to thrive during these tough times. Sharing your experience can help ensure resources are accessible, especially where they will do the most good. Please take the Family Strengths Survey and help improve COVID-19 response efforts.

We want to learn about what has been helpful. How are you and your family doing this week? Are there resources we should share with others? What resources do families need the most right now?  The survey takes about six minutes and a new survey is posted every Friday.  We also post reports from what families shared in prior weeks.

We are very grateful for your time whether you are completing this survey for the first time, or returning to update us on how your family is doing this week.  Your responses to the survey are anonymous. You can skip questions. You can stop at any time. Taking the survey does not affect your receipt of services, but instead tells us what families need right now. 

At the end of the survey, you will have the choice to enter your name and contact information for a chance to win a $100 gift card (5 people randomly selected each week from everyone who answers the survey). You can also provide your name and contact information if you want to receive a notification to take the survey again next week. The contact information entered here is never linked to your answers to the survey.  

Connecting with Resources

In response to what families have told us through prior week surveys, we are working with community partners to highlight resources that may be helpful to families.  Check our Family Strengths Survey Resource List and Topic Reports.
