Organization Details
Adults with disabilities and families of children with disabilities are facing some of the most serious effects both medically and financially. Compared to others, individuals with disabilities are more likely to contract COVID-19, to get it more severely, and to have worse outcomes. Financially, they are already more vulnerable than many others due to higher rates of unemployment for adults, and the increased cost of care for families with children who have disabilities. Much of our work around the pandemic has been helping families find funding for housing and food, and providing extensive emotional support and counseling. We have also worked with families to obtain technology and learn how to use it, especially around children attending school virtually.
