As the COVID-19 pandemic spreads through New York City, our work is more crucial than ever.
This public health crisis has already started disproportionately affecting vulnerable New Yorkers the most. Daily wage workers are finding themselves out of jobs and losing health insurance coverage; newly delivered or to-be low-income mothers face uncertainty about how to take care of their own and their child’s health; home-bound seniors are more isolated than ever; and school age kids are suddenly home all day and no longer have access to free and reduced school meals for their daily nutrition.
We anticipate a tremendous increase in demand for PHS’ services such as enrollment in Neighborhood WIC, SNAP, and health insurance, in the near future.
Donate to PHS’ COVID-19 Response Fund to help ensure that no New Yorkers fall through the cracks.
