We Are Committed to Providing Responsive Support During the...
GRoW is engaged in a multifaceted, strategic response to the international crisis spurred by the COVID-19 pandemic.
At the outset of the pandemic, our 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. A few of these 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 in an effort 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 one thousand community members each day during these challenging months. Beyond direct services, we are supporting Community Coalition and Fair Count in their efforts to increase civic engagement and virtual Census responsiveness, particularly in hard-to-reach communities. Finally, we are supporting Screens 4 Students, an initiative fiscally sponsored by One Voice, who are providing computers to Los Angeles area students to assist with their remote learning.
