We have created this page to be able to share with the entire RVA community some mutual aid resources that can be very useful during the continuity of the Covid-19 pandemic.

If you would like to send us a link or resource to upload here, please send it to our Communications Coordinator, Carlos Bernate, at carlos_bernate@shcrichmond.org

Remember that we are bilingual (Eng-Spa) and would like all resources posted here to be in both languages. But unfortunately, some resources will be found only in English.
