In a single moment, you can create a big change in our community.
Continued inequities and the lasting economic impact of COVID have created greater challenges for too many neighbors. The need for relief now and long-term solutions is growing.
Across the U.S.:
According to the Associated Press, 23% of people say they have not been able to get enough to eat or the kinds of food they want
The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development reports chronic homelessness increased 15% during the COVID-19 pandemic
Black women often receive lower quality health care which causes a preterm infant mortality that is three times higher for infants born to Black mothers than white mothers, according to the Center for Disease Control.
A report from Child Trends, says white high school students are more likely to be employed than their Black and Hispanic peers, which means students of color are excluded more often from earning valuable job experience at an early age.
