There is no weakness in asking for help. After all, life is a group effort.

When our situations and way of life changes so dramatically and quickly, we might not know where to go to find help. Others can be afraid or humiliated at finding they suddenly can’t survive on their own.

No one is expected to do everything by themselves. These resources are available for people who find themselves in a difficult spot. Reach out via phone or the internet and find out if you are eligible for assistance.

If you have a resource to share or find an error, send it via email to covid@ccdconline.org.
