Worldwide, the coronavirus continues to impact jobs, schools, and families. For our neighbors living in poverty, the pandemic’s effects are even more crippling. Job loss, food insecurity, and housing, safety, and education are all at risk for the people we serve. That’s why Shepherd’s COVID-19 response is comprehensive and ongoing.
Breaking the cycle of poverty during a pandemic is not easy. You can help our city emerge from the crisis stronger than before. From emergency medical supplies to turning our parking lot into a hotspot so our neighbors can connect to school, apply for jobs, and get desperately needed aid, we’re working to break systemic and situational barriers to hope, for as long as it takes.
