GSMYC Resource List

As Hays County continues to have a growth in confirmed COVID-19 cases, we know that this can add stress and anxiety to families who are already experiencing stress and anxiety from kids now being home-bound for school and possible loss of income. We want you to know that GSMYC is here to offer support to our surrounding communities during this difficult time. Below we have a list of resources on managing stress during a pandemic, how to protect your family, and activities to remain active and engaged as a family during quarantine.


If you need additional assistance, please contact our office and we will do our best to connect you to the appropriate resources. Here at GSMYC, our mission is “Sheltering Children, Strengthening Families”. We will continue to uphold our mission and support Hays County families through this challenging time. Stay healthy!
