Coastside Photographer captured photos of some of our team through their windows during COVID. As they shelter in place they are working hard to protect our community during this critical time. Together in the first month they have sewn over 3000 free masks to protect our local farmworker and essential worker community.

"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."
