Programs by Type


Our mission is to support youth, families, seniors and all members of our communities. We want everyone to honor the governor's executive order to Stay Home. Stay Safe. Save Lives,  and are providing some resources to help support you and your family. 

Stay Connected to Learning

Each Monday while schools are closed, St. Clair County RESA will share a collection of high- quality, engaging educational resources organized by content area and grade level and, with clear guidance for parents supporting their children's learning.

How to talk to your kids about COVID-19
  • Are you struggling to explain what is happening with your children? Christina Howard, a mental health specialist with Community Mental Health that consults with our child care, shared this story as a way to help your little ones understand. Download it today.

  • Christina also recommended a website – Be Strong Families – to provide resources to help parents stay strong and positive for themselves and their children during this time. Check it out.

  • Use this Story Hand ritual to comfort and connect with a child who is feeling scared or anxious about COVID-19. This is another recommendation from Christina.
