NEW YORK — As the coronavirus continues to impact several industries, foster care systems are finding new ways to ensure that families and children are getting the help and resources they need during this difficult time.

CEO of the Children’s Village Jeremy Kohomban discusses how the organization is responding to the pandemic.

Kohomban said their goal is to help children manage their anxiety, especially because of the fact that many of the children they take care of come from areas heavily impacted by COVID-19.

“What they want is to know that their families are going to be well,” he said.
