Together, We Are The Safety Net

There is not a single person who hasn’t been touched in some way by this crisis. And, even though we are in this together, the reality is that our experiences may be vastly different.

For some, quarantine has been an opportunity to slow down, to reflect, but for some it has been filled with loneliness; for some, working from home is the new normal, some are balancing working from home and homeschooling their kids; and for some, no work at all has them wondering when money will run out; for some, savings will cover the bills until unemployment kicks in, but for some it will be financial devastation during the 4 week wait because of the backlog of claims; some families have a strong safety-net that will catch them before they fall but so many have no one.

We know that the largest burden will fall on people who are already the most vulnerable: people in low-wage, insecure jobs; the 4 out of 10 families who are unable to cover an unexpected $400 expense; the families living on the edge during the best of times.

In the past few weeks, we have heard their stories, but together, we can catch them before they fall.
