COVID in a Crisis

By Kasya O'Connor Grant | Development and Communications Coordinator

Dear COHI Family,

We are so grateful to be emailing you in the age of the vaccine! The end of isolation is finally in our sights and we could not be more ready for it. 

Despite this historical news, the families COHI has been working with through the pandemic are not able to experience the same sense of relief. The pandemic has led to a disproportionate amount of the migrant and undocumented community experiencing hardship and illness. 

Without documentation, these families do not have insurance and are therefore deterred from seeking medical care. Even for those who are able to pay the cost, the fear of deportation keeps many of them from entering medical spaces. The economic effects of this pandemic are even worse. This population is over-represented in the jobs hit hardest by this depression: low-wage, service work.

That's why COHI's COVID-19 Fund will not disappear with the arrival of the vaccine. We will continue to address long-term impacts that will be felt within this community, through rental assistance, medical resources, mental health resources, legal assistance, and more.

Will you join us in helping your fellow humans?

In gratitude,

COHI Staff & Board
