ABOUT OUR WORK
Through a survey conducted by the United Ways of Texas in June of 2020, 54 percent of respondents indicated that they have been highly or moderately affected by COVID-19.
With a population of almost 840,000 residents and 54 percent of those residents reporting moderate or high affects due to COVID-19, it can be estimated that up to 453,000 individuals within the El Paso region are highly or moderately affected by job loss, reduced income, inadequate childcare, stress/anxiety and other factors as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
To assist in COVID-19 response and recovery, the local government has invested heavy resources into health initiatives, basic needs assistance, and other response priorities. However, even with the availability of these valuable resources, many El Paso residents are unaware of the opportunities for assistance or the eligibility and application process to receive aid.
As a result, the Community Resiliency Center was established to provide assistance and resource navigation to community resources for individuals within the El Paso community affected by COVID-19.
