Emergency Response and Recovery Fund

The pandemic has caused many to go hungry or become homeless. The Emergency Response Fund helps ensure these basic necessities are available.



What Inspires You?

Everyone should have food and shelter, especially during this historic pandemic.

Campaign Goal

Together, we can fight food insecurity and homelessness during the pandemic.

90% of the fundraising goal achieved with the help of neighbors like you

Food Insecurity
As COVID-19 spread, people raided grocery stores to stock up. As a result, local food banks and food pantries are not receiving their normal donations from grocery stores and must purchase extra food to help families and older adults in our community. These costs far exceed what was budgeted and strains their ability to provide for those in need.
Homelessness and Housing
Due to Governor Newsom’s “shelter-in-place” order, local homeless shelters have been inundated. Additionally, the practice of congregating homeless individuals in shelters is concerning because homeless individuals often lack the means to reduce their exposure and protect themselves. Without this support, there are increased risks of spreading COVID-19.
Caregiver Wellness
The COVID-19 pandemic puts extra strain on Providence St. Mary caregivers who are on the front lines of this unprecedented health crisis. Existing Foundation funds will be put to this area of need to care for the physical, mental and spiritual wellness of our caregivers, as they care for our community.
