The Human Needs Task Force works closely with community agencies to quickly respond to the emerging needs of City of Ottawa residents. Recently, a community partner vocalized a lack of resources directed specifically at younger residents on how to stay safe during the pandemic and take care of each other and themselves. So, the HNTF has created a list of resources including a fact sheet about EarlyON programs and an activity colouring sheet for children, to share information directly with them.
The Human Needs Task Force would love to see these colouring sheets once they have been coloured in. Once finished, artists can share their work by emailing pictures, with the consent of the artist, and any feedback to Raynor Boutet at HNTF_GTBH@ottawa.ca. We also encourage anyone to share feel-good stories about people in their communities helping each other as we navigate our way through COVID-19.
