Coronavirus Emergency Rent and Food Assistance
Project H.O.O.D. has launched an emergency rent and food assistance program to help those struggling during the current stay home order issued by our Mayor and Governor. All "non-essential workers" have been ordered to stay home to stop the spread of the Coronavirus. This has put an immediate strain on the working class and already poor families in our community.
Although elected officials and others have called on landlords to be kind through this pandemic, Pastor Corey B. Brooks, the Executive Director of Project H.O.O.D. says this does not always translate to the poorest communities. “We often see the country standing together in times of crisis but, unfortunately, the poorest among us continue to suffer at an exponential rate.”
Pastor Brooks said that this Coronavirus crisis in our community needs an immediate remedy. “While it is good that the federal government has pledged to assist America's workers and those in need, by the time these families receive those funds, it may be too late. We need to help alleviate the financial destruction brought upon our community and keep people in their homes and able to feed their children."
Additionally, newly released COVID-19 statistics reveal that African American neighborhoods are being hit the hardest. That is why we need your help now. Please donate so that we may assist our fellow citizens in desperate need. Your donation helps Project H.O.O.D. to continue our work and helps those most vulnerable in this current crisis.
