Dear Friends,

Increased stress and decreased access to resources put our community’s mental health at risk. That’s why our Spanish language mental health services are so important, and why we’re asking you to help us raise $5,000 by October 1st.

According to Morgan Siegel, Assistant Director for Case Coordination and our very own mental health champion, “our mental health program offered in Spanish provides support to our families as they navigate unprecedented times with their children’s return to school.”  

Some of our community members are essential workers, but despite being employed, cannot afford the childcare necessary to work and facilitate their children’s distance learning needs. Of those who are at home, many are grappling with the stress of COVID-related unemployment. Add to these barriers, the technology access and literacy gap, and it gets more complicated.

Still more of our community members are also dealing with issues like not knowing where their next meal is coming from or when they will find employment again. We are continuously in awe of our clients’ resiliency despite the staggering level of hardships many are facing. With these crises resolved, our community members would be able to focus their attention on thriving.

Your donation helps provide relief.  

$40 purchases 12 meals.

$75 provides a mental health screening.

$150 helps a family access crucial public assistance like food, housing, and health care benefits.

Yours in Community,
NMIC
