Emerson Resource Center

Emerson Resource Center

Gives parents of children with disabilities the ability to communicate directly with advocates who can connect them to help with housing, transportation, education, recreation, funding, and other support. This referral service is supported by books in addition to connections to service providers.

Independent Learning Resources

During the COVID-19 pandemic, many Variety families are sheltering in place while Variety Kids are now learning from home. We've gathered an extensive list of free or low cost resources available to families that cover a variety of subjects. The list also includes virtual field trip resources, educational shows and games, and other fun resources.
