Helping Families and Children Cope With Traumatic Events

Child Care Aware® of America is proud to work with the Partnership for Disaster Preparedness, the American Academy of Pediatrics, and Save the Children to protect children before, during and after an emergency -- including traumatic events or natural disasters.

The resources provided below are tools for helping children and families cope with any tragedy as well as potential resources to aid in the restoration of child care services.
