The United Way of St. Joseph County (UWSJC) has established the COVID-19 Response Fund for St. Joseph County to meet the short term, immediate needs, of individuals and families that will be impacted by COVID-19 as well as the long term impacts that have yet to be seen.
UWSJC recognizes the potential for economic impact, unpaid absence, illness, or job loss related directly or indirectly to the virus, increased child care needs due to school and child care closures, and the potential risk of not being able to pay housing, utility and food bills due to financial strains.
Organizations that serve populations in need every day will find themselves under-resourced to serve a growing demand for those services. Keeping a strong network of engaged providers will be critical to the health of our community services. This fund may also support the capacity building and/or operational needs that may arise as the situation unfolds.
