COVID-19 Relief Fund

Helping CIMI Families During Pandemic

-- June 19, 2020

COVID-19 has struck some groups harder than others. Families in the CIMI program were already struggling before COVID-19 drastically affected the economy. A recent poll showed them to be in good health. Less than half of the families have their children in summer school. The fathers of the families, often the sole bread-winner, are working anywhere from 20 to 40 hours a week. About 60% of the families receive assistance with food. There were few families who had received no help, until they received a COVID-19 relief check from CIMI.

In May 2020 CIMI’s board of directors approved to send a total of $5,000 from their unrestricted funds to these families. The families appreciated this financial support and used the money to pay for food, utilities, rent, and clothing.

In this newsletter, we bring you a glimpse of their life through the stories they have shared with CIMI.
