“When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, “Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.”—Mr. Rogers
Research shows that introducing children to the idea of community helpers will help them better react in moments of crisis. “Meet the Helpers” is a new web campaign that offers resources, tools, and programs designed to help parents educate their children on the importance of community helpers, health and safety habits, and emergency preparedness strategies.
