Faith & Community-Based Support

This pandemic is a stressful and difficult period. For many people, faith and spirituality can offer meaning and comfort during these trying times. Religious leaders often have a deep understanding of their communities and neighborhoods, and advocate for the needs of their community.

COACH (COVID-19 Assistance for Community Health) has partnered with local faith-based organizations in areas that have been greatly affected by COVID-19. If you are going through difficult times because of the pandemic, you may find helpful support and resources here. Or, if you are a faith or community leader, and you know people who can benefit from COACH support, there are services available to you and your community members.
