As the nation responds to the coronavirus pandemic, United Way of Greater Los Angeles has announced the creation of the Pandemic Relief Fund to support L.A. County’s unsheltered residents who are especially vulnerable to the coronavirus, and low-income individuals, students and families at imminent risk of homelessness and hardships due to health and economic impacts of coronavirus.
The fund will:
Support the public health response to protect unsheltered residents & frontline organizations and individuals serving L.A.’s most vulnerable through this crisis.
Prevent growth in homelessness due to economic impacts of coronavirus to low-income individuals and families, through targeted investments where jobs and wage reductions are disproportionately impacted.
Provide support to low-income students and their families who require assistance with technology and other means to stay connected to their academic instruction and learning.
Provide additional support to our nonprofit partners, in alignment with United Way’s mission to break the cycle of poverty, that experience a decline in giving due to the pandemic and its impact on the economy and giving cycles.
