COVID-19 Relief Resources
We know a lot of families are struggling. Applicants for our grant listed concerns about their children’s mental and physical health, being able to access the services and supports they need, and simply being able to provide healthy food, safe physical activities, and a roof over their heads.
Our family grants were just a drop in the bucket, so we want to remind you that there are many places throughout Hennepin County that can help you with some of these needs.
