When COVID-19 struck, this client was laid off from their job, but they have HIV so they were also afraid to be exposed to Coronavirus with their compromised immune system. They didn’t get unemployment until May. We were able to get them food through Project OpenHand-Columbus from March-May until they were back on their feet. We also helped them with rent and utilities. This is someone who normally doesn’t need our help, but due to COVID and their HIV and high risk status, they reached out and we were able to get them through this time! They were so grateful!
