As businesses and services continue to open up, we wanted to let our supporters know that we are continuing to take safety precautions and are keeping our support-group activities to technology-based groups for now. However, our mobile Promotores are still in full force, conducting home visits and supporting clients in person when it is necessary and safe to do so.
Our Latino communities were greatly impacted by the business and school closures, but many also had the added challenges of limited transportation, lack of or complete misinformation of resources in Spanish, fear of asking for government aid or an ineligibility for economic relief due to immigration status.
Staff have been busy ensuring that families have the necessary resources and support to address their fears and anxieties related to the pandemic. We continue to partner with local food banks to make deliveries to families in need, and are also continuing to create activity packets for children as well as video content to keep our families healthy, calm and informed.
Your donations allow us to continue to provide much needed support to our families during this unforeseen COVID-19 crisis.
