  • Thurgood Marshall College Fund: TMCF supports public HBCUs (Historically Black Colleges and Universities) - which primarily serve African-American students (85% across all HBCUs), low-income students (more than 72% at TMCF member-schools), and first-generation to attend college (more than 52%). TMCF member-students are highly at risk of dropping out, and TMCF created a COVID-19 Emergency Fund to support students who lost jobs and income due to closures caused by the pandemic, became housing and/or food insecure due to income loss or closing dorms. Some students remained on campus, because they either did not have a home to return to, or their homes were not safe. TMCF also is supporting its historic member-schools, which serve a population that would otherwise not attend college - to ensure that the schools are able to weather the storm and remain open in order to serve their unique student population. For this group of students - low-income African-American students - the impact of a college education is transformative for themselves and their families.
  • Loaves and Fishes Too: We have cast our safety net wider in Minnesota by expanding meal services while establishing new food rescue partnerships. All partnering groups and nonprofits are being supplied with healthy food for their own meal services, mobile meals are being brought to those who lack stable housing, groceries are being distributed, and we adapted operations to governmental prohibitions by shifting processes. Rather than onsite cooking and seated meal service, meals are pre-prepped at central kitchens, transported to our warehouse for distribution, and then reheated and given to people in takeaway containers at public locations. Each person receives whatever number of meals is needed for their household. We are also partnering with the YMCA of the Greater Twin Cities and UnitedHealth Group to offer family-style pans of food that serve 4-6 people each along with individual bag lunches.

  • The ALS Association North Carolina ChapterProviding care services and supporting the North Carolina ALS community, a highly vulnerable population already burdened by a disease that tests them physically, emotionally and financially every day.

Leveraging telemedicine with our multidisciplinary clinics to continue providing a level of care imperative to maintaining a quality of life amidst a terminal ALS diagnosis. COVID-19 still poses an unparalleled threat to people living with ALS and their caregivers who must continue to take every precaution to safeguard their fragile respiratory health.

  • Big Brothers Big Sisters of Essex, Hudson, & Union Counties, NJWe are providing socio-emotional support to the vulnerable children and families in our adult-child mentoring program who are socially and economically marginalized, and hardest hit by this pandemic. We are responding to their pressing needs during the current COVID-19 crisis for essential services, social connection, emotional support, consistency, and trauma-informed care. Using our evidence-based, trauma-informed program we are guiding our mentors and families on how to best support their children in these new uncharted waters as we strive to sustain the strong mentoring relationships that they have worked so hard to develop. Through our e-mentoring program we are pairing more vulnerable youth who are most in need of mentoring services with a committed positive adult role model. Our mentors bring a sense of relief from the weight of toxic stress, build trust and hope for the future, and promote a child’s ability to be resilient in the face of adversity, all of which are imperative in these uncertain times.
