Our organization was founded on the principle of creating a sanctuary, a safe place for students and families to learn, find joy and “break bread,” and that remains true today as we face growing public health concerns.


Many of the communities in which we work will be especially vulnerable to the repercussions of the pandemic. Our immediate focus is on supporting those children, families, and teachers. Our free resources appear below, and will periodically be updated. Learn more about our current efforts in food distribution, digital learning and health & wellness programs.


As we adapt to the COVID-19 pandemic, we’re seeking the help of our friends and supporters through our COVID-19 Relief fundraising campaign.




Stay up to date on the latest news regard the COVID-19 pandemic.

We'll also be using our Twitter and Instagram pages to share updates from our communities.

If you require food during the COVID-19 pandemic contact the UDSA National Hunger Hotline: 1-866-3-HUNGRY or 1-877-8-HAMBRE for assistance in Spanish.


Wellness Program
