We’re Here to Help! – New Resources Added to our COVID-19 Community Resource Directory Update

Last week we launched our COVID-19 Community Resources Directory to assist in sharing information about resources available to individuals and businesses in relation to the current coronavirus (COVID19) pandemic. This week we expanded the directory significantly, adding more sections and tons of helpful information and links on:

Local, State & Federal Responses, Health & Safety Updates
Resources for Workers
Resources for Businesses & Employers
Food Access
Housing, Utilities & Internet Assistance
School Closure Info & Support for Students & Youth
Emotional Support & Physical Wellbeing
