We understand how tough it can be to have lost your job or have your hours reduced due to the Covid-19 crisis. To make matters worse, those services you might rely on are not able to assist in person. We do want to give you as much assistance as possible and to share the links and resources we know as quickly as we can. Note that the resources are changing continuously. Where we can we provide links to the source so that we don’t give out wrong information.
If you have additional questions, please email us and we will forward it to the appropriate person (firstname.lastname@example.org).
