The unprecedented response required to combat COVID-19 and the associated physical and social distancing that has resulted has placed a significant toll on the mental health of our residents resulted in increases in those seeking mental health counseling, substance use, and suicide. Additional funding to support the expansion of services to address these services can be applied for in this category.
Prior to the onset of COVID-19 many in our community were struggling. Poverty is particularly high in the Northwest and Southeast portions of our community and most notably among our African-American population. COVID-19 has placed our most vulnerable at even greater risk, threaten even more with poverty and has strained our local safety net to the breaking point. These funds seek to strengthen that safety net by providing additional support to non-profit social service providers who address the basic needs of our most vulnerable community members who have experienced increased costs associated with an increased demand for services.
The impact of COVID-19 has stretched the capacity of community food resources and increased demands have resulted in increased cost by those providing access to food. These funds seek to strengthen those resources and increase capacity for those in need to access healthy food.
