Resources for Families During COVID-19
We hope these resources come as a helpful resource to all of us, as we continue to deal with the impact of COVID-19. The inequity in global vaccine distribution even in United States is one that we will be addressing in a series of blogs. People of color in United States and developing countries continues to have limited access to vaccine. The issue is ACCESS NOT HESITANCY as it is being portrayed. If made easily accessible, people will get the vaccines! This is a blog for another day. For today we would like to share the services below with you!
