Habitat for Humanity of Greater Los Angeles (Habitat LA)’s COVID-19 Emergency Relief Fund has been created to provide emergency food, personal protection equipment (PPE), hygiene materials, and financial resources to those low-income families in greater Los Angeles who have been affected by COVID-19 due to sickness, loss of income or self-quarantine.
Hundreds of thousands of Los Angeles-area households have lost their ability to earn an income due to the closure of non-essential businesses. Thousands of those are low-income adults and their children who are already at risk of not having adequate supplies of food, hygiene, and funds to weather a projected four to five-month public health crisis. The families most at-risk are those that Habitat LA has served for 30 years – low-income, service or hospitality industry workers, single head of household, etc., many of whom already had inadequate financial reserves to weather a storm of this magnitude.
COVID-19 will likely have a long-term financial impact on families in our community. You can ensure stability and wellness continues to be within reach for hardworking families by supporting our fund.
