Amid the COVID-19 crisis, the Morris County Organization for Hispanic Affairs (MCOHA) is leading this project to provide direct emergency assistance such as grocery store gift cards, diapers and formula, and personal protective equipment to low-income families and seniors. In addition, vulnerable families who are facing eviction and homelessness will be able to receive assistance and access support services. One phase of this work includes ensuring that families can access educational and support services such as unemployment filing assistance, tutoring and mental health support for children from the safety of their home. To meet the needs of residents in Warren County, specifically Hackettstown, MCOHA is partnering with Trinity United Methodist Church in this work. By the end of this project, MCOHA and its community partner will have advanced the existing response efforts in the state, which can inform an equitable recovery throughout New Jersey.
