Donate to the COVID-19 Resilience Fund

Community Roots Housing residents are facing the most unequal recession in modern U.S. history.

COVID-19 has created an unprecedented crisis for the communities we serve.

Prioritizing rental assistance, the COVID-19 Resilience Fund helps those most impacted. 100% of the funding received is being used to support the residents, small businesses, and vital work of Community Roots Housing impacted by the coronavirus.

Service workers, artists, small business owners, childcare providers, gig workers, and anyone whose income depends on patrons have been experiencing deep distress this year. Many of these workers are Community Roots residents. In a sheer matter of weeks this past spring, the economy took them from a place of stability to a state of personal financial emergency. The pandemic-related recession we’re experiencing today has overwhelmingly affected low-wage, minority workers the most. According to the Pew Research Center, more than half of low-income households have lost their jobs or much of their income.

In spring and summer 2020, Community Roots raised more than half a million dollars for the COVID-19 Resilience Fund. These funds were swiftly deployed for resident and small business tenant rental assistance—yet we expect the need to stretch well into 2021. We are currently anticipating more than $1.5 million needed to support our community’s resilience through these unjust economic impacts.

Your gift could make the difference between resilience and long-term hardship.

Community Roots is building safety nets under our impacted residents and small business tenants, connecting them to financial support and other resources to get through this extended crisis.

The incredible outpouring of support for the COVID-19 Resilience Fund in spring 2020 tells us that Seattle shares our vision. Today we need your help to ensure that your low-income neighbors and local businesses remain strong through the hard months ahead, in the second calendar year of COVID-19.


 

 “There’s no words that can express how grateful and blessed I feel about being part of this AMAZING organization. For the last 24 years my family to be part of such a generous community. I feel so thankful for all the support I’m receiving in such hard times. Thanks to the Rental Assistance had allow me and my son to stay strong and united focusing in trying to give back some of the great things we keep receiving. Gracias gracias for all your hard work and generosity.”
