A Lifeline to the Community

The COVID-19 pandemic created a crisis upon a crisis for our community. Families who were one missed paycheck or unplanned expense away from poverty suddenly found themselves unemployed and unable to buy basic resources. People of color, already facing poor health outcomes, have suffered from the coronavirus at a rate more than 2X higher than other populations.

But our neighbors did not face this crisis alone. Our community came together to extend a hand to those who needed help. United Way and a coalition of community partners from across every sector led and strengthened efforts to weather this storm.
