...to our virtual Native Life in the City Giving Campaign! We are so excited to share about United Indians and the ways we have pivoted in line with the emerging needs of our community under these new realities.
COVID-19 has wreaked havoc on our previously vulnerable communities. This pandemic has not only illuminated vast inequities inherent to the system, but also deepened these inequities -- exposing our families to even higher rates of unemployment, food and housing instability, difficulty accessing the healthcare system, and more. We have responded in many new ways, including dropping off groceries to 100 (and counting) of our families each week, delivering hot meals and fun activities to our Elders, offering virtual home visits for our foster children, facilitating virtual lactation lounges for new parents, and even helping to deliver babies over FaceTime.
To continue this critically important work, we need your help. For one week, you will have the opportunity to help uplift our clients and families through and beyond this pandemic. Take it a step further by starting a fundraising profile and challenging your community to give! Each dollar or online share supports our ability to run 12 comprehensive, culturally relevant programs serving Seattle area urban Natives through all stages of life.
