Covid-19 Community Resource Updates
Thank you to everyone who collaborated and contributed to compiling this information of Worcester Covid-19 community resource updates. As information is coming in so quickly, we wanted to create a centralized place to find resource capacity updates.
We hope that this can be a temporary resource to be used by community health workers and others who are referring clients or seeking resources themselves to find what resources are currently available. We are working in collaboration with CommunityHELP to update and add to their resources so that it can continue to be used as a longer term and much broader resource for referrals.
Below you can find a searchable a database of community resources that have been populated through partners as well as available information online about updated capacity of community resources (including remote services, language capacities, hours of service and more). You can also see below a folder of complied flyers and grouped resources such as emergency daycare food pantries, and school meal sites as well as from our partners at Worcester Community Connections Coalition, a resource guide for parents of key resources for each category.
If you would like to add additional resources or update resources please click the button below. If you see corrections needed to your listing please email Casey Burns firstname.lastname@example.org and any corrections can be made.
We are working in coordination with CommunityHELP the region wide searchable resource for health and wellness programs. found here https://www.communityhelp.net/ The CommunityHELP team is available to support you in updating or adding your listing at CommunityHELPOPs@umassmemorial.org and
Information shared via the survey will also be shared with the Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency (MEMA) for their statewide resource mapping.
