We assist in providing mutual aid support, including foodboxes, emergency funds & tenants rights training and direct action advocacy. Our work is centered and focused on most vulnerable populations including elder citizens, people with disabilities, the homeless, undocumented immigrants and working-class families in our community.

Emergency Assistance During COVID-19
The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted all of our neighbors especially working -class immigrant essential workers like Oscar DeLeon.
During difficult times, individuals like Oscar, who after months battling COVID-19, he was in dire straits with medical expenses and unable to keep up with his rent.
