Change. It’s the one word we all got to know a little bit better in 2020.
COVID19 has impacted all of our lives, but many members of our community were already struggling before the pandemic hit. Issues like housing instability, living paycheck to paycheck, and navigating serious health concerns were only amplified by COVID19. And the need keeps growing.
People of color in our community have been particularly impacted by the pandemic. Decades of inequitable access and opportunity have put Black and Brown community members at a higher risk - not only a health risk, but risk of homelessness and housing instability, un and under-employment, lack of access to nutritious food, the list goes on and on.
Today's episode looks at how COVID-19 has impacted our community, especially our local nonprofit agencies…and the people they serve.
