Saint Paul COVID-19 Resources

Governor Tim Walz has extended the stay-at-home order to May 4, 2020.  Sprockets is aware of the increased stress that this places on youth, youth workers, and the community.  With all of the media, event and school closures, and call for social distancing a lot of anxiety and unsureness can become overwhelming for both young people and adult caregivers.   We have compiled a list of resources to help everyone find what they need.

  • Social isolation and physical distancing from others also means that there is an isolation for family members who may experience violence.  Please check in with your youth and coworkers, and help point them to the right resources.  Do not encourage isolation for these individuals, but instead a place to be healthy.
