Community Resources You Can Use Today

WSI Staffing Blog - COMMUNITY RESOURCES YOU CAN USE TODAY

We’ve all heard the adage “Look for the helpers” during times of crisis. Now more than ever, community resources offer the help many of us need thanks to the aftershocks of the global COVID-19 pandemic. Whether you’ve experienced job and income loss, are behind on your rent or utilities, or have been otherwise adversely affected, there are several organizations that can help sustain you and your family in the weeks and months to come.

Large organizations like United Way and Salvation Army are great places to start, and partner with other organizations to help meet basic human needs. Here are other resources available in the communities we serve, and beyond.
