An unprecedented crisis calls for an extraordinary community.

1 in 8 community members who struggled with poverty before COVID-19 are now in greater danger. Tens of thousands of community members have been made newly vulnerable, due to job loss and financial crises. That is why the UJA has launched an Emergency Campaign for Community Resilience.
