What was prior to covid19 a weekly sit-down community meal, food-diaper-feminine products pantry, and health access ministry with a congregational nurse we have shifted to a doorstep delivery of pantry supplies and prepared meals (when we have donations for this). We have only 2 volunteers doing the prep, and 3 drivers who do the deliveries.
Prior to covid 19 we served 30-40 people a week. In less than a month we are up to over 100 people, many of them immigrant families (undocumented) whose breadwinners lost work and have no access to other government or social support. We're getting connected with these families through members of our Latino house church who are reaching out to their neighbors and inviting them to trust and ask for support, even though it's hard in these times.
Thankfully, we are drawing on a local and longstanding partnership with FaithAction International to direct these families to even more resources, and the relationships we've built with area churches are bearing fruit in the form of extra financial and material donations to help meet the needs we are encountering.
(Español abajo) We are partnering with FaithAction International which serves immigrants and refugees.
