Just Recovery: Wish List & Commitments
We are on our way to launching our largest food distribution event to support families not able to find food and water. What we heard back from our members is heartbreaking. Reports of no water access in homes, multiple burst pipes, bacteria and rust in water, collapsed roofs, cars that do not start, worries about docked pay and loss of income, concerns about home schooling or work with internet disconnections, uncertainty on water and electric bills and potential disconnections, and overarching need for mental health and healing support,
