Pandemic: COVID 19


‘We isolate now so when we gather again, No one is missing’



COVID-19 has changed the way we engage with one another. Limited movements, interactions and business have all come to a halt. And while many appreciate the welcome respite of the rat race of life, many in our community don’t have the luxury to stop working. Elders need support accessing basic needs and our youth need safe connections, now more than ever. 


With your help, we’re maintaining these valuable connections and resources. We’re providing masks, meals, gloves and access to programs online. 


As we slowly move the dial towards re-opening, maintaining social distancing, hand washing and wearing masks will be critical to reducing the spread of the Coronavirus.


A financial contribution from you goes a long way to making sure we can provide long-term sustainable support and resources.







Rebuild Upper Northside!



In the days following the brutal murder of George Floyd by Minneapolis Police, several neighborhoods and businesses were terrorized by racists. Many were torched to the ground.


Our communities rallied together to patrol and protect in the absence of police. Sadly, while major retail stores are able to absorb these losses, small bricks & mortar businesses are either newly established, under-resourced and often under-insured. We’ve partnered with the Upper Northside Business Association to raise funds to help restore these businesses and provide support for our neighbors who’ve selflessly protected our neighborhoods…many at the risk of exposure to COVID-19.
