"Operation Counting Lives, Saving Lives" is a multi-faceted grassroots campaign premised on the values of self-determination, collaboration, and utilizing a hub and spoke model that seeks to address the critical needs of our community during this COVID-19 Health Pandemic.

The objectives of this initiative are:

 

- To ensure that the essential workers in our community are receiving the necessary equipment to stay protected.

- To ensure that the most vulnerable members of our community are able to receive masks, gloves, and hand sanitizers (which contain QR codes that direct them to our website which has a comprehensive list of information and resources residents can access during this COVID 19 crisis in English and Spanish). 

- To promote and encourage mental health and wellness in the midst of this crisis. We know that the state of the economy coupled with the coronavirus has created a sense of social isolation, panic, depression, anxiety, PTSD, trauma, and suicide ideation among others. Thus, as an organization, we are providing linguistically and culturally relevant mental health services and are encouraging our community to call if they need to talk to someone.

COVID-19 - The Reality of Our Communities

Ms. G is a single mother of two who tested positive for COVID-19 and recently lost her job, her landlord is asking for the rent, and the limited food she can buy for her family is not enough. 
Mr. J called us for help because, in his own words, he feels desperate. He and his wife have lost their jobs and, due to their immigration status, have been unable to find a new job, are not eligible for social assistance, and have no access to medical care.
Ms. A, a mother of three, called us because her husband, who recently lost his job, began to binge drink. She does not know what to do and is extremely concerned.

In this together
