During COVID reduced hours and income has significantly affected our local farmworkers and essential workers. Food and economic support during this crisis has been significant. Each week ALAS' team visits local farms to provide groceries and other resources needed. ALAS is also able to provide ongoing case management to connect workers to our mental health program counseling support, community engagement, immigration resources, medical insurance and triage to other critical resources. COVID has uncovered significant needs for a strong group of heroes working in our fields to care for all of us. We are committed to being a support for them through crisis and beyond.
"For me ALAS is family, they have helped us to be connected to one another, to be proud of our culture and to find help when we need support. ALAS has given me hope and has been there for my us, Thanks to God for all those that help make this possible for us."
"On behalf of my family, thank you. Thank you very much. We cannot express how much you have support us during this difficult time. Not only do you help Latinos dream, but you also give us THE WINGS to stand up when we feel down. Thank you very much."
"We have been very grateful to receive alas' services and help, so much or little it is a great relief during this time."
