COVID-19 Response and Recovery Resources
Over the past several months, BARHII/Rise Together has been working diligently to compile resources and respond to the COVID-19 crisis. We greatly appreciate the hard work of our members and partners during this time and want to make the resources we’ve compiled from that work available to better work toward a comprehensive public health and economic response.
Efforts to respond to COVID-19 are increasing rapidly in the Bay Area, and it’s critical to protect housing equity and economic stability for families in that response. Not only can housing insecurity disrupt a family's ability to shelter in place and practice social distancing, but it forces unhealthy trade-offs between paying for housing and investing in medical care, nutrition, and other basic needs. The lack of certainty and threat to financial stability can lead to mental health impacts including higher rates of depression and other impacts to overall health.
Below, please find resources compiled over the last several months of BARHII events and trainings. This page will be updated with additional resources as they become available.
As we continue to respond to this crisis, it’s important that we’re able to provide you the resources and support you need for your own response. Our team is available to provide technical assistance, including help in gathering information and developing op-eds.
