COVID-19: How to Find Assistance
While it is normal to feel uneasy or concerned about your family’s safety and the safety of our community during this time, please know that our wonderful community is coming to together to support each other. There are many volunteers, relief organizations, and associations coming together. While the cases may seem like a lot, Dallas has reported that thousands of tests have been negative!

Food and Grocery Assistance
The North Texas Food Bank has created an internal task force to work specifically on providing food to those in need during the Coronavirus crisis. They have partnered with other food providers in the area and have switched to a boxed-food method. Contact them if you know someone who needs assistance or you would like to donate.
Many schools in our community are providing meals for all students under 18 years old. The Texas Education Agency has created a helpful app where you can find schools that are offering meals and what time they are serving here.
The Texas Workforce Commission understands that many people in Dallas/Fort Worth, have lost their jobs due to Covid-19. Residents can log into WorkinTexas.com for assistance. Each day, hundreds of jobs are posted online that can be worked from home on a computer or have been deemed “essential.” If you are an employer and have opportunities available, use this link to upload your job description to help those in our states find remote work.
