Project Description

The Amigos Basic Needs Program began because the pandemic and cultural unrest made the basic needs of the Latinx community very clear. Many of our families lost jobs and we know that the majority of the jobs were low income. This program provides individuals with things that are necessary to sustain life such as food and basic hygiene supplies. Since April 2020, Amigos has distributed food and hygiene supplies, furniture donations, and children’s activities for over 70 families each month and we continue to provide support through partnerships, referrals for social services and dissemination of critical COVID-19 information.
