COVID-19 Community Response Initiative

Our Community Response Initiative includes food distribution in our immigrant communities and Black and Brown unity

In light of California’s and Los Angeles’ Stay at Home orders because of COVID-19, our office has ceased all on-site operations that are non-essential, including programming, community events, and our annual Central American Youth Leadership Conference. Our team is currently working remotely, maintaining virtual and telephonic communication with the youth and families we serve. 

This has challenged us to be creative in serving our community while safeguarding the health and wellness of our staff, who are all resilient individuals passionate about social justice. 

Amidst the current crisis, Homies Unidos launched our Community Response Initiative to mitigate some of the most immediate needs of our community. In addition to bi-weekly food distributions in Koreatown, Pico-Union and Westlake, we assemble care packages and deliver them to our youth and families, which include teen parents, single parents, undocumented and mixed-status households, formerly incarcerated individuals, families of currently-incarcerated individuals, and individuals experiencing homeless and food insecurity. 

Our community needs us now more than ever and we will continue distributing food and provide care packages to our community members as long as the need is ongoing and alleviates some of the stress and financial strain brought on by the current situation.

By supporting Homies Unidos’ Community Response Initiative you will help us continue to provide food and essential care items to those in our community most in need.
