GRoW is Committed to Providing Responsive Support During the COVID-19 Pandemic
At the outset of the pandemic, GRoW's strategic response (which you can read more about here) focused primarily on supporting health service providers on the frontlines of patient care. In the months since, our response has broadened to include a wide array of organizations that offer essential services during this challenging time.
Organizations include A New Way of Life Reentry Project, a first-time GRoW grantee-partner offering housing and legal services to formerly incarcerated women (some of whom were released to reduce the prison population amidst the pandemic), and Sisters of Watts, who joined forces with East Side Riders Bike Club to serve free meals to nearly 1,000 community members every day. Beyond direct services, GRoW is supporting Community Coalition and Fair Count in their efforts to increase civic engagement and virtual census responsiveness in hard-to-reach communities and Screens 4 Students, a One Voice-sponsored initiative that is providing computers to Los Angeles-area students to assist with their remote learning.
