The youth and families who are disproportionally impacted by COVID-19 need you now more than ever before.
It goes without saying that this pandemic has had a devastating impact on our daily lives and the livelihood of our community. Rooted in the settlement house movement with 128-years of service, USES is once again poised to support our community through crisis. Over 1/3 of the children living in the South End of Boston are from families living below the poverty line. The majority of their parents are immigrants, single parents, and people of color. Sadly, COVID-19 is exacerbating the physical and emotional impacts of living in poverty and amplifying the needs of families who are struggling the most. Our families are experiencing the stress and anxiety of job loss/reduction and loss of income – they are unable to afford rent, food, and pay other bills and they need our support. With a mission to harness the power of our diverse community to disrupt the cycle of poverty for children and their families, we stand ready to serve, but we can’t do it alone. Please help us by supporting our newly established neighbor2neighbor (n2n) Fund for Families.
