With each day – and sometimes hour – that passes, trying to comprehend the breadth and depth of the impacts COVID-19 will have for our people, our families and our communities feels impossible and unfathomable. It is with open hearts that we at AJL stumble through this alongside the partners and communities we serve.

Thank you to everyone for doing whatever they can to support the people around them as we come together to overcome this crisis.

We at AJL are trying to monitor relief efforts and will be updating this blog post as we come across new efforts and initiatives. If you know of efforts that should be included, please email Kristi at kpetrie@ajlfoundation.org and we’ll update this post.
