In response to the Covic19 Pandemic and Quarantine and to help families adapt to our new reality, we have come up with creative ways to remain connected, and continue engaging with our members and support our communities during this difficult times.
ESSENTIAL SURVIVING SUPPORT
We joined Mayor Marty Walsh, city officials and community partners in East Boston to make sure our Neighborhood is safe and the most vulnerable families get the support they need. We help to identify those who need immediate assistance to provide them immediate support by delivering fresh meals, vegetables, Hygiene Kits and financial assistance through the Boston Resiliency Fund. Within the past 4 weeks we have provide some financial support to 100 families in East Boston. We are directly monitoring 1500 Spanish speaking people and their families.
We are assisting individuals filling out unemployment applications, translating and connecting them with the resources available through the Government and local organizations.
Our mental health approach
As an arts and culture organization we are using our resources to help our Latino community cope with this crisis by providing free online activities to engage the whole families including cultural dance, music and arts classes, online concerts and festivals. Starting in July we will start one on one counseling with our new program “Art Couching PNL”.
Through our weekly radio shows broadcast on Super Boston 99.9 FM. simultaneously on Facebook Live we provide up to date information about Covic19. We interview local leaders, officials, experts on the health, education and business fields.
