As the United States shuts down for COVID-19, POC cannot. We had to cancel our major Fund-Raising Jubilee scheduled for May 9th, and we have had to cut back on some of our programs, but we can’t eliminate them all. Many families in the surrounding communities count on POC for continued support in times of crisis. We are receiving many calls and questions about what this crisis means to a parent in poverty. Individuals isolated due to language have serious questions that if unanswered could be critical. We are running on a skeleton staff of bilingual community navigators and liaisons and youth development staff with the Executive Director working alongside each. We are practicing social distancing, curbside pick up and drop off of food and community resources. Other non-crucial staff is working from home. We have been mobilizing people and donations, and communicating with partnering agencies to best serve these truly vulnerable children and families. BE OUR HERO: We could not accomplish this if it wasn’t for individuals like you who continue to give to others that need help now. This is your time to be our hero and open your heart.
