COVID-19: COMMUNITY NEEDS AND OPPORTUNITIES FOR RESPONSE

SUMMARY

The realities of COVID-19 are uncomfortable and inconvenient for all of us. For some, due to medical conditions or financial situations (e.g., lost wages, food insecurity), the impact can be devastating. We have created this page for those who want to know the best ways to help.

 

OUR PARTNERS

Our long-term community partners serve those most vulnerable to the ramifications of COVID-19, so they are well-positioned at the forefront of our community’s response. We’re in regular contact with them and are closely monitoring their ever-changing realities. We will continue to update this page based on the latest information available about their needs.
