Dear Parents and Guardians:
We would like to take a moment to update you on steps Futures in Education is taking to assist our families and schools during the COVID-19 health crisis. First, we pray for your well-being and that of your children and loved ones.
To ease the process for our families, we have extended the deadline for financial aid applications to May 31, 2020. As always, we strongly encourage returning families to apply and finish applications as soon as possible to accelerate the award process.
Families who participate in our Angel program, must still send in their Easter letter to their Angel sponsor immediately. This correspondence will go a long way in keeping our faithful donors engaged. The next and final letter to your Angel is due in early May, the End of Year Thank You letter. Please begin submitting your letters, which can be written by student or parent.
We are also doing what we can to accelerate the scholarship payments to the schools to fulfill our award obligations for this school year. We are also planning fundraising initiatives to help further assist families during this challenging time. We hope to share more information soon.
The staff at Futures in Education are working remotely, so if you need to reach us, please send an email to Scholarships@FuturesinEducation.org or leave a message at 718.965.7340 and we will call you back during business hours.
During this unprecedented time, Catholic Charities, Diocese of Brooklyn (Catholic Charities Brooklyn and Queens) is available to assist parishioners in need. If you or someone you know needs assistance, please call the Catholic Charities Call Center (718) 722-6001 Monday to Friday from 9:00 AM to 6:00PM. Catholic Charities is continuing operations, especially emergency food pantries and mental health services; please be aware that our mental health clinics have the capacity for offering counseling over the phone.
Please know that if you, a family member or elderly neighbor need pastoral care, please reach out to your local pastor for assistance. As our priests pray for your intentions, you may add yours by clicking this link: Cfbq.org/Intentions
You remain in our prayers.
