Make Sure Our Vulnerable Neighbors Are Not Left Behind
While many of us can see glimmers of hope on the horizon as vaccinations rise and infection rates fall, many of our neighbors will continue to struggle to recover from COVID’s health and economic impacts.
Sam (not his real name) was laid off from his job at a bottling plant and his pool of Lyft customers dried up. There is Ane, who was laid off as a maid at a D.C. hotel. Hannah is expecting a second baby as her husband, who lost his job during COVID, tries to cover bills by driving for Uber Eats. There is massage therapist Betty, whose salon closed during the pandemic and who, after a few weeks back at work, contracted COVID. And there are many more in need.
