For general operating support to help East Side House cover some of the costs of adapting their services and operations in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. This support will enable them to better meet the needs of their participants, all of whom are of vulnerable populations residing within some of the highest need communities in the country. These low-income and vulnerable populations are at highest risk during times of public health crises. East Side House’s programs in response to today’s challenges will allow their students and their families to continue to build academic and economic strengths as they navigate “the new normal” that COVID-19 has brought to the world. By mitigating the effects of COVID-19 as much as possible, they are not only protecting their students and families over the short-term, but they are better positioning them for success in life after COVID-19. Their goal is to continue to provide quality programs and educational initiatives to the students and families across their full range of services by continuing to implement new approaches to the heightened challenges now being confronted.
