ACH Child and Family Services’ Real Help for Real Life counseling program is providing a series of free virtual events and resources to support parents and children as the school year starts amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.
With so many North Texas schools starting the year virtually, everyone is feeling additional stress and pressure to transition back into school as smoothly as possible. ACH counselors have partnered with local educators to assist by providing actionable tips and training.
Uncertainty is Real: Tips for Heading Back to School During the Pandemic is a live Zoom class that is held in the afternoons and evenings until August 26. Classes are free and open to all parents.
Real Help for Real Life also has a video series, Real Tips for Trying Times, where counselors discuss various parenting tips in English and Spanish. Topics include the importance of check-ins, calming anxious children, and other mental health tips.
With over a century of experience, ACH, a Fort Worth-based nonprofit agency, brings needed resources and skills to children and families struggling with life’s challenges. Some of our 17 programs and services keep children and families together while others provide a healing home for children who can’t live with their families. And through the Our Community Our Kids division, ACH is leading the way in Community-Based Care in seven counties of the Texas foster care system. Our vision is for families to thrive and children to experience safety, hope, and love.
