You can help families impacted by coronavirus today
July 9, 2020
Carmen was facing homelessness several months before the pandemic and had just moved into an apartment with the support of Bridge of Hope when the stay-at-home orders were issued. Working as a nursing assistant in a retirement community, she was considered an essential worker. Then her daughter’s caregiver decided she could no longer provide care due to the coronavirus. She was forced to reduce her work hours, figure out temporary childcare and transportation to work, and help her first grader with online schooling.
In April, the Bridge of Hope National Board of Directors established a Coronavirus Response Fund that will provide additional support to families like Carmen’s, to address the unique challenges they are facing during the pandemic. The Board set a goal to raise $60,000 by July 31, with every member contributing. With the help of supporters like you, 78% has been raised so far with $12,980 still needed by July 31.
Through the Bridge of Hope Coronavirus Response Fund, Carmen received additional rental assistance. Her Neighboring Volunteers have helped with groceries, porch visits and even a drive-by birthday gift drop-off for her daughter. Dependable childcare and transportation to work are still a challenge, but she is breathing a little easier thanks to the support she has received.
