Indomitable Women 4 Agape Life
During the COVID-19 pandemic IW4AL was able to provide assistance to over 5,000 people in need through our Feed My People program. We continue to be able to connect those in need to the resources and emergency food as needed through established partnerships.
Other programs such as our Rent and Utility Assistance Program extends assistance to individuals and families who are experiencing hardships due to the pandemic. It is our goal to help as many individuals as possible and families sustain housing and prevent homelessness. This program also provides assistance to those transitioning from homelessness and being placed in permanent supportive housing (PSH) with security & utility deposits.
Assistance is available through funding.
On top of the pandemic described as "a crisis within a crisis", the homeless community is among one of the most vulnerable population. Reaching and protecting people experiencing unsheltered homelessness during the COVID-19 outbreak requires coordination across several local sectors. To prevent negative outcomes from lack of services, community leaders should continue activities that protect people experiencing homelessness, including supporting continuity of homeless services, healthcare, behavioral health services, food pantries, and link to permanent housing.
The statistics are growing due to COVID-19, but you can help through your giving.
