COVID-19 Virtual Resource Page 

The COVID-19 (Corona Virus) has impacted all of our lives in a variety of ways. In an effort to support social distancing and help curb the spread of the virus we are all making changes in our daily lives and routines. Working together, and for the greater good, many people and organizations have come forward to provide resources for caregivers and families to help make this difficult time a bit easier. We’d like to share some of them here. If you have resources to share please email sfrederickson@ippi.org.
